Mr Schwartz;

You may be better posting this request to the dev list at
mailto:dev@openoffice.apache.org rather than here.
Many of the developers work in a cygwin environment and may be better
able to help with this. Though some of the developers do frequent this
list this type of question stands a better chance of being answered
over there. Most of the people who answer questions here are users of
OpenOffice but not necessarily conversant in usage of cygwin.

Please be advised that I have cc'd you as a courtesy. You would do
well to subscribe to the list to be sure not to miss any replies. To
subscribe just snd a blank -mail to
mailto:users-subscribe@openoffice.apache.org?subject=subscribe%20users
then follow the directions in the return email.

Regards
Keith McKenna
