[Mono-dev] On the way to bootstrap vbnc on Mono - How to debugthe runtime on cygwin?

These patches are currently "beta", that means that they make vbnc work and 
don't seem to mess things up, but I didn't test them excessively. I just 
posted them because I need some help with the previously described runtime 
problem I was unable to track down or isolate and these pathes are required 
to make vbnc reach the stage that causes the runtime to crash. So they 
currently only should be used in a working copy.

I would like to track down all bugs that are preventing vbnc from 
bootstrapping and then I'll either propose patches or file bug reports.
