Chris, thanks for the answer & reference,
To answer whether I am porting an application, yes I am continuing work on
squid, (which is running happily under cygwin now), but the core developers
are discussing using mmap or sysvshm for some upcoming development.
The application - squid - does use the cygwin.dll at the moment, and I do
not plan to attempt making a -nocygwin port at this stage. I am happy to be
guided though - what list should I address further questions to?

Rob
