Next time I have access to a cygwin machine I'll check. However, I
wonder whether we need to respect the polling period then. According to
<http://oss.sgi.com/projects/fam/faq.html#what_is_fam>, FAM does not poll.

It's OK for me if you commit this patch. You know cygwin behaviour much
better then I do.
