I'm sorry, but this is NOT handled by the APR libraries (but by the
Subversion ones); even more, Cygwin presents itself as Unix at build
time, which means this is NOT a bug in Subversion. Moreover, CVS
doesn't handle this correctly: it doesn't handle it at all; it just
turns out that way, as with many things with CVS.

Bye,

Erik.
