Re: How to diagnose Cygwin / Windows shutdown problem

There is such a mechanism on Win2k. I don't think there is one on

Are you saying that when you click close on a shell window and Windows
sends an event (WM_CLOSE I think) Cygwin does catch this but when you do
shutdown of Windows then Windows does not send some event to all
processes informing them to shutdown? Or are you saying that when you do
shutdown of Windows then Windows does send some event to all processes
informing them to shutdown but Cygwin for some reason cannot catch this
one? Why would Cygwin be able to catch the WM_CLOSE but not the WM_SHUTDOWN?
