Additional Comments

Cygwin relies on a windows style terminal, so command line programs will not work unless if they are launched from wineconsole. Anything involving forks hangs. This means bash runs just fine, but it can only launch built-ins. Also vi runs, but trying to out put to a process such as wc also causes it to hang.
