another thought - since McAfee and cygwin do not coexist, it's likely
that not many people are using McAfee to screen downloads for cygwin.

That is, the version of cygwin which I do have as well as their faq
indicate that McAfee/cygwin cannot agree on who should own the dynamic
memory pool - one of the things I meant to check on was whether anything
had been done on cygwin's side to fix that.  Perhaps McAfee is repairing
their side by treating cygwin as a virus...
