- Crash in server-mode: One of the advantages of Cygwin emacs-w32 is that it
supports the server-mode via invocation with --daemon (also coming soon to
official Emacs!). But using emacsclient wihtout any options first gives an
error and then crashes emacs-w32. See attachment "emacs-test"
I can't reproduce this. And I'm puzzled by the output:

On my system if emacsclient can't find the socket (which only happens if
there's no server running), I see the following in a Cygwin Terminal
$ emacsclient-w32 foo
emacsclient-w32: can't find socket; have you started the server?
To start the server in Emacs, type "M-x server-start".
emacsclient-w32: No socket or alternate editor. Please use:
--server-file (or environment variable EMACS_SERVER_FILE)
--alternate-editor (or environment variable ALTERNATE_EDITOR)
I also don't understand why emacsclient would be trying to open
/dev/cons0. Do you by any chance have EMACS_SERVER_FILE set in your
environment to /dev/cons0?
- Crash in About Emacs: On another machine with (in contrast to my primary
machine) very lean installation (see attachment 3) emacs-w32 crashes when I
open the About Emacs page from the Help menu.
I can't reproduce this either. I tried it in a fresh Cygwin install,
just choosing emacs-w32 and its dependencies. I ran 'emacs-w32&' in a
Cygwin Terminal, emacs opened in a new window, and there was no problem
after clicking on "About Emacs".
