See attached for ChangeLog and patch.  The instructions to apply the
patch is as follows:

    $ tar -xzvf postgresql-snapshot.tar.gz
    $ cd postgresql-snapshot
    $ patch -p1 <Cygwin-1.1.7-PostgreSQL-20001229.patch

Note that I ran the regression tests and all 76 test passed.

Unfortunately, I was bitten by the pq.dll not in the PATH problem again --
shame on me.  I should have sent in a patch for this before and I will
do so shortly.  Due to the impending release, I don't want to hold up
the Cygwin (compilation) patch.

BTW, I was doing the builds and regression testing on my machine at
work via ssh so I didn't see Windows pop up its standard dialog until
after I VNC-ed in.  Hence, when the regression test initially "hung,"
it became a real head banger there for a moment...
