Yes, I know, it was my fault (see other messages in this thread).  I was
not criticizing GNU Arch, only saying that something in my setup was
causing massive problems.  If I felt GNU Arch was deficient, I wouldn't
have tried to figure things out -- I would have just given up.

I tried the Cygwin port and it failed immediately, mangling the names of
my source code not just the contents of {arch}.  But this wasn't the
corruption problem.

In case I've been misinterpreted, I'd like to say for the record that I
love GNU Arch.  I am still learning how to use it and am commited to
working through what ever problems I encounter.  This has even included
reading parts of the source code on occasion.  Its a great peice of
software and I commend all of those involved in its development.

Thank you.
