Look, there's no need to shout. I'm not using Cygwin emacs, I'm using
regular W32
binaries and am not even sure what tls binary emacs found or how. It
appears to be:

"openssl s_client -connect imaps.mycompany.com:993 -no_ssl2 -ign_eof"

My analysis of the code of `network-stream-open-tls' revealed (as do
the comments)
that it tries to cleanup the process buffer of previous garbage left there by
`open-tls-stream` (who nonetheless tries to place point correctly in
the process

I'm **guessing** "openssl" is a cygwin binary, I didn't even check that.
I **reported** a bug since I considered unexpected behaviour occurred even with
the cleanest of "emacs -Q" run.
I **suggested** a fix because of two reasons: (1) I tried it and it
worked and has
been working since (2) in the context of the interaction between the
two functions
`network-stream-open-tls' and `open-tls-stream' it seemed reasonable
that the latter
cleans up after itself.

Maybe, in my reduced usage of gnus, I haven't gotten to a situation
where things would
break because of signal handling or whatever. Lucky me.

When things do break, I'll happily unzip dlls, I have nothing against that.

Thanks for all the info, feel free to close the bug if you haven't already
