Well, unless someone on this list familiar enough with signals 
(or is willing to learn about them) has xfree86 installed and is 
willing to try this and debug it, this one will likely languish 
for a while.  Here's what you can do to help though.  Try this again 
with the latest Cygwin (if you don't have that already) and with the 
latest Cygwin snapshot.  There have been some changes/fixes to signal 
handling which may help.  Report back your findings.
