Yes, perhaps.  Actually, someone had reported a text-mode bug in a
previous release, and submitted a patch to me.  I used this same
patch to build 7.05.  I guess I need to look more closely and find
other open calls that aren't passing the binary flag down.

I don't think it's a Cygwin bug, just a porting detail that I thought
I had dealt with :-(

Not sure.  I'll have to examine the source.

BTW, thanks for the bug report and your help in tracking it down.
I'll see if I can create a 7.05-2 build in the next week or two.
