oh, i see. i should make myself clearer.  i'm talking about

#ifdef __CYGWIN__
        int cv[2];

in rshd.c. base implementation uses pipe to handle stderr, but cygwin
version seems to handle stdout via pipe too. if some program started
by rshd then calls getpeername (1, &name, &name_len), it fails with
ENOTSOCK. i suspect there was some reason for adding 'cv', wasn't
