problem; I can now open zillions of file descriptors.
(Thanks for the nudge; I'd never tried to figure out how to do that before.)
(I had earlier tried to back off to an earlier cygwin using the

something, and it didn't work well for me.)
So I guess 1.5.9-1 was a bit of a problem child. Hopefully
next release will have that resolved.
