Yeah, maybe I should give myself a gold star for alerting Corinna, along
with a gold star for Corinna.  I even suggested that the original bug
reporter send the report to the cygwin mailing list.

I doubt that anyone really understands or appreciates how much behind
the scenes stuff goes on between Corinna and me.  That's just part of
our really crappy maintainer duties.

Btw, I'm not suggesting a gold star for either Corinna or me, here.
This is business as usual and, if I handed one out here, I'd be spending
my days just giving out gold stars to Corinna.
