Got it.  During socket testing I noticed that read and accept calls on
unconnected sockets just hang, rather than returning -1 with errno set
to ENOTCONN or EINVAL.  The reason is that Cygwin uses Winsock's socket
event handling, and the event handling simply ignores those conditions.
So I added code to check for these error conditions explicitely, but then
forgot to hanmdle the credential exchange phase during a connection attempt
on an AF_LOCAL socket.  I fixed that in CVS and created a new snapshot
on  Pleae give it a try.

Thanks for the report,
