Just fetched the SVN trunk. The problem reproduces.

I tried with the executable in SVN, and also with a locally rebuilt
kernel using the latest Cygwin gcc (which I just fetched; I don't have
devel tools on Cygwin).

Hmm, Cygwin's "gcc" is 3.4.4. How conservative! GCC 3 was end-of-lifed
several years ago. At least they could use 3.4.6, the final
version of gcc 3, sheesh.

This means that we are all probably using the same compiler for
building CCL on Windows. The Makefile wants Cygwin, and Cygwin's
GCC is a sitting duck of a target.

I will try a different gcc, to test the compiler bug hypothesis.
