Hi. Discovered some problems that occur when using the newly released 1.7.1 series of cygwin with NOD32 2.7 installed. Specifically, it hangs rsync operations, and causes ssh-agent to hang, taking 100% cpu when ssh or similar tries to talk to it. This was occurring for me on Windows XP SP3. The problem does not occur with version 4 of NOD32. The following workaround is available: Open the NOD32 Control Center [sic] and then select "IMON" from the "Thread Protection Modules" Click the "Setup" button. Select the "Miscellaneous" tab. Click the "Edit" button in the "Exclusion" group box. Add c:\cygwin\bin\rsync.exe. and c:\cygwin\bin\ssh-agent.exe Click "OK" and then "OK" to save the changes and you're done. E.
