Thanks!  It looks like I am going to postpone this for tomorrow again.

Meanwhile, I've uploaded 1.7.9-jumbo-5 with patches up to and including
your 0007.  I've also built Win32 binaries of this, which I might
release tomorrow as well.

And I am re-releasing the Win32 build of 1.7.9 with patched cygwin1.dll.
