Thanks a lot for the quick response!

Do you have IRC, AOL, MSN, ICQ, Yahoo, or any other chat client available?
That helps communication...

I have attached some patches for cygwin, to make building from CVS easier.
Also, you will have to change to get around another cygwin issue:
Index: test-driver
RCS file: /mono/mono/mono/tests/test-driver,v
retrieving revision 1.5
diff -u -r1.5 test-driver
--- test-driver 31 Jul 2003 14:32:42 -0000      1.5
+++ test-driver 22 Apr 2004 00:15:39 -0000
@@ -1,4 +1,4 @@
-#!/usr/bin/env perl

 my $interpreter = shift;
 my $test = shift;

For now I just ignore all the .il stuff by doing a touch xx.exe to go beyond
those in the make process. 

Locking at the first crash a change from Lluis might be responsible for some

If I find a good example I will forward it.

Hi Urs,

I did try most of these tests - not on PPC - but on Windows (which suffers
from Thread.Abort problems which is another issue) and on Linux
and on HPUX. I actually use the test_cs target most of the time and
most of the tests pass though now I try testinterp on HPUX I see there is a
problem with it in that one .il file doesn't assemble.

I am updating my Windows build on my work PC (did it last time at home)
to check things are OK still (I see you've done some stuff to help the
mcs mcs.exe problems which will make life easier...)

Can you send me the trace of just one failure - with this many I'd hope
that most of them are the same....

(Also expect the 3x improvement more often than 5!)
