Wait a few releases then resubmit assuming we've not had complaints from
Cygwin user.  Okay!

That would indeed be yours truly :)

Cool.  FWIW, the reason we've started applying this patch to the
downstream Cygwin builds is that I've now seen a number of reports
(primarily on Stack Overflow) of this problem where that config change
has fixed things.  I'd been holding off until I had those extra reports,
but now I have them I made the patch and figured I'd submit it upstream
at the same time.  As above, I'll wait a while until we're happy it's
stable, and resubmit at that point.

(On which note, I should probably submit the patch to the git-gui
Makefile we've had in our builds since back in v1.7.9, before I took
over the maintainership, since that one clearly is pretty stable...)

Thanks!
