First off, <http://cygwin.com/acronyms/#PCYMTNQREAIYR>. Thanks.
Secondly, the /etc/services file seems ok, but in Cygwin it's actually a
symlink to the one in the Windows system directory. Do you have the
symlink on your system, or is /etc/services a file? If it's a file,
Windows (in particular, winsock) won't be aware of it.
