Jason,

I've found the error (which probably caused my earlier problem to continue
longer than they needed to). In my clean installation, cygwin1.dll is
installed  in /bin. I downloaded cygwin-1.3.1.tar.gz and then untarred it
over my existing installation, not realising that in the archive,
cygwin1.dll (and some other .exes) is in /usr/bin. So all the time I *had*
upgraded to 1.3.1, it was just that the older .dll was in a directory
located before /usr/bin in the path! I've now moved the files from /usr/bin
to /bin, and all works fine (and uname -r proves I am running 1.3.1 this
time).

Thanks again for your help,

Regards, Dave.
