I just tried the above and it passes the regression test without any

The above is a known problem that has already been fixed.  See the
following for details:

Try executing "uname -r".  Do you get "1.3.0s..." or "1.1.8..."?

Did you stop the ipc-daemon service (and *all* other Cygwin processes)
before installing the snapshot?  If not, then the Cygwin 1.1.8-2 DLL is
probably locked in memory preventing the snapshot DLL from taking affect.
