hope that doesn't sacrifice any of the features of jchevm

1) I'd suggest you to set up the DDD visual debugger in order
 to run step by step jchevm and use breakpoints. DDD works perfectly
 on Cygwin: all you need to do is to install the X libraries, and from
 a shell, run $startx and then, from the windows that appears, $ddd

2) in order to proceed, let's "align" our development environment in terms
 of source code modifications. In fact, to build jchevm, just like you, 
I had
 to add some declarations in some header files, and modify the pread()
 call into a read(). My proposal is the following:
 let's install the new versions of Cygwin, Classpath, and jchevm,
 build them from scratch, produce a written document with all the steps
 and modifications, and post it this mailing list.
 Afterwards, we will be able to write and debug some test cases.
what do you think?
