What *exactly* doesn't work anymore? Can you please provide a simple
testcase which shows the problem reproducible?
As for your trick, it still works for me running the X gs.
$ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-5.1 cathi 1.7.0(0.160/4/2) 2006-10-23 17:00 i686 Cygwin
$ cd /bin
$ mv gs.exe gs.exe.orig
$ ln -sf /usr/X11R6/bin/gs.exe gs.exe
$ ls -l gs.exe*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 corinna Users 21 Oct 23 17:25 gs.exe -> /usr/X11R6/bin/gs.exe
-rwxr-x---+ 1 corinna Users 4507648 Feb 15 2006 gs.exe.orig.exe
<Correctly starts the X gs binary>
(Eric? Do you see what happens when renaming foo.exe to foo.exe.orig
using mv(1) from coreutils-5.97-1 ? That doesn't look good to me...)
