Actually, I posted a message on Saturday which indicated that it now
is binary compatible.  If you are seeing problems using an executable built
using the *latest* version of libcygwin.a with Cygwin 1.1.2 then that is
a bug.  It should work.

The textmode.o stuff won't work, but the program should still operate
using the 1.1.2 default behavior.

What problem did you see?
