The above was certainly not my intention.  My patch only changed the
source just enough to get it to build with Cygwin 1.1.4 -- there were no
functional changes (except preventing the possible psql crashes).
Unfortunately I do not have any Cygwin 1.0 and b20 setups, so I can't
determine whether or not my patched version will build under those
environments.  If the source builds, then it should should function as

Are there any kind souls out there still using Cygwin 1.0 or b20 and
willing to help?  If so, please apply my patch to PostgreSQL 7.0.2 and
then try to build it.  If it builds, then run the regression tests and
post the results.

I can appreciate the above, but I must point out the following:

    Cygnus no longer supports b20
    Cygnus no longer sells the Cygwin 1.0 CD

My suggestion (and hope) is that the current PostgreSQL CVS source should
build OOTB with a "current" Cygwin.  And that patches are produced for
the older Cygwin versions, if necessary.
