I ran LiveUpdate manually just before the last time I tested the files.  I
scanned the files both in the archive and after extracting.  The cygz.dll in
1.1.3-6 is tagged, the copy in isn't.

WinXP Pro 5.1 Build 2600
Virus definitions: 2002/02/13 (2002/02/11 before LiveUpdate)
Norton SystemWorks: 5.0.1 aka 2002.05 Build 59
NAV: 8.00.58B
