activeperl emulates forking using win32 threads. I don'tknow how cygwin

This smells like total FUD. This person that admittedly does not use
Cygwin nor obviously know anything about Cygwin says that it's a fork
problem and that's that?
They don't have a windows machine to test with, but they
are trying to help pinpoint a problem that works under linux
and ActiveState, which seems like the most useful response
to date. I can't give them a Windows machine or a cygwin
install to test with. I can run the programs and report on
the results, and I can get a copy of the source to you that
fails. Is there anything else I could do to be helpful?
