Maybe it was the fact that I called `cvs up' without the -d flag...?

Duh.  Sorry about that.

So, now I can run the testsuite and I'm having a problem with the
"forwarding" test.  The older version of this test worked fine, the
latest from CVS sometimes fails:

  run test ...
  failed copy /bin/ls.exe
  cmp: EOF on /home/corinna/src/openssh/64bin/regress/copy
  corrupted copy of /bin/ls.exe

This is the last test in, "transfer over chained unix
domain socket forwards and check result"

Inspecting the log files I see this a couple of times in failed-ssh.log:

  debug1: Local connections to LOCALHOST:3301 forwarded to remote address
  debug3: channel_setup_fwd_listener_tcpip: type 2 wildcard 0 addr NULL
  debug3: sock_set_v6only: set socket 5 IPV6_V6ONLY
  debug1: Local forwarding listening on ::1 port 3301.
  bind: Address already in use
  debug1: Local forwarding listening on port 3301.
  bind: Address already in use
  channel_setup_fwd_listener_tcpip: cannot listen to port: 3301
  Could not request local forwarding.

failed-sshd.log shows a similar error.

Running the test another time, it runs to completion.  Running it
again, it fails.  It fails more often than succeeding, though.

This may very well be a bug in Cygwin or a shortcoming of the underlying
Windows, but I'm not sure what to look for.

I attached the failed-foo.log files from a failed run to this mail,
maybe somebody can sched some light on this problem?

Other than this problem, the testsuite succeeds on Cygwin.
