Thanks for the fast turn around time.

Did you verify that rcs-5.7-2 passes the test case mentioned in the
above URL?

BTW, the private RCS build that I have been using without any problems
is built with the patch attached to the following:

I finally answered the question that I asked in the above URL:

    Does anyone know whether or not this patch is really needed with the
    latest Cygwin?

The answer is "no."  If you use my patch, then the John Wiersba's is not
needed.  This is because with my patch the following problematic line
is #ifdef'd out:

    if (lseek(wfd, wfd_off, SEEK_CUR) == -1)

It is probably too late, but you may want to consider my patch instead.
Nevertheless, if rcs-5.7-2 is no longer susceptible to truncations, then
I'll be happy.
