I'm guessing you had specific reasons. >From the looks of it so far, Cygwin works perfectly fine with --fork when using fcntl() locking instead of flock(). We tried this after establishing that the problem we've seen all the time is that flock() deadlocks. This is obviously a bug in Cygwin that should be fixed, but that's another story. We will implement fcntl locking an alternative and use it for Cygwin at least, possibly others? https://github.com/magnumripper/JohnTheRipper/issues/1044 magnum
