Thank you for noticing this issue.  I completely forgot about that other
output format.  In fact, I think we can change the Cygwin build to
output virtual times as well by now.  The reason why those were disabled
was that they'd be erroneous on Windows 9x.  Even Windows NT 4 already
displayed them correctly, if enabled.

I ended up patching this slightly differently for the revision of the
script that I plan to include in 1.7.9.  Attached in case you want to
test this one as well.

Thanks again,
