  Does  CYGWIN give you full UNIXish  fork() ??
  ZMailer uses that in couple places, unfortunately.
  (smtpserver socket listening daemon, router queue manager,
   some parts of scheduler where transport-agent argv[] is finalized
   within the fork's child-side.  The scheduler has also   mytime()
   thing which forks off a child-process.)

  M$ windows supplies a   spawn()  (fork+exec) to my knowledge.

  All of those things I mention above can be solved without fork(),
  but I haven't had any incentive for it.  ( spawn() a sub-router
  with suitable parameters, let it start, and start interaction
  with the scheduling master.  Scheduler's  mytime()  can be done
  with threads.  The  smtpserver can - in theory - be rearranged
  to be thread-friendly.   Router can't.)

  Yes, definitely.  They are generated files.
  (Although that is Bootstrap-Issue...)

  I just renamed them in the CVS.
