It's not easy to find out if ntsec is turned on, is it? When I wrote
the above, I was thinking "ntsec turned on" means $CYGWIN includes the
But I think I've just realised that isn't true, is it?
If it's pre Cygwin 1.3.something-like-18, then it's on if and only if
ntsec is in $CYGWIN, but if it's after, it's on unless $CYGWIN includes
nontsec. So the actual test you'd have to make would be something like
what I've written here (read "~" as "includes"):
version < 1.3.18 then $CYGWIN ~ \<ntsec else !( $CYGWIN ~ nontsec )
