And, FYI, I have been merrily trying to deal with my "simple" change
of adding a path_conv call to build_fhandler.  It has had some really
amazing repercussions throughout the code which I'm sure make merging
harder.

I must have unconsciously known that raw devices were a bag of worms
since I was asking other people to test them.  Chuck's findings earlier
today showed that I couldn't just ignore devices and hope that they
just worked.

Anyway, I have been making (I think) an unusual number of changes to
the cygwin core lately.  I'm sorry if I'm making merging harder.  I
hope to stop this soon.  I want to release 1.3.4 but it should actually
work when I do so.
