I don't recall either - I have an impression that it was from SH's
changes, but would have to review the source to see (I'll probably
do that, to check if there are any comments in the changelog that
might apply).  Perhaps it didn't work for Cygwin at the time - that's
been a couple of years, and b19 or b19.1 was current then.
