Win32 doesn't use read/write, it uses send/recv.  While the read/write
oftentimes works, it's less than effective on occasion.

I suspect either the cygwin thunk is misbehaving, or we have compensated
in the server but the cygwin port doesn't pick up those exceptions.  Grep
throughout the source for send/recv where we've #ifdef'ed Win32, consider
including CYGWIN in those exceptions and see what you observe.
