I see your point and will step back. 

What we should do then is to change the half-existing Cygwin support
to support Cygwin really in a Unix way and not a mixed
w32/cygwin support.  The goal is to let it work in the best way
with mutt ans similar programs. 

We can't do this for 1.2.0 but it should be a goal for 1.2.1.
