Yea, the fact that Windows sucks is inappropriate.  Please fix that. 
Thanks. <g>

I haven't had a chance to look at your patch yet in detail, but it seems 
like it could be reasonable.  It is very very very lame if that is what
has to be done, but that isn't your fault.

Thanks for the effort, if it fixes the concurrent CGI hang thing I will be
happy, although I never could reproduce it.  Don't doubt it exists though.

cvs works the same way under NT, the only difference being that you
normally have to take greater pains to install it.
