I've successfully run "make check" on our entire devo tree without
fault or hang.  I don't know which of my changes are in the latest
beta; Geoff would know.  There were changes to both winsup and
expect, and I might have touched tcl's tclWinPipe.c as well,
and a new dejagnu/baseboards/cygwin.exp that disables some gdb tests.

The last change I made was in expect/exp_event.c in pipe_thread(),
which was to make select() time out in order to check EOF on the
pipe.  If you have this version (that pipe_thread *also*
calls PeekNamedPipe()), you probably have all my patches,
if B20 includes expect at all (Geoff?)

Before my patches, I'd also get faults after 1500-1600 gcc tests.
It's due to a number of subtle resource leaks that eventually
result in a Create*() call failing, but it isn't checked.
