I just sent the same question to this list and to the cygwin mailing
list (I'm subscribed to both, obviously).

Don't Reply-All to that post.  I was automatically marked as a spammer
by sending one email to both lists, even though the problem could be
either a cygwin one or a cvs one.

I'd hate to think that a helpful reply to my query might get someone
else blocked.

I guess Cygwin (RedHat?) have a rather draconian policy in place.

So be careful.  For reference, here's the auto-reply I got from Cygwin.
