While I'd be happy to discuss a bigger picture, one point at a time, we have 1.61 deadlines in a couple of
weeks, so I'd rather we tackle the immediate issues first.

- It seems you have some issues on Cygwin
- Steven has provided a patch
- You haven't had the time to look into it yet

So, it seems that on the issue of cygwin testing, you are the person who has to make the next step. Is that
