Feedback: use the cygwin commandline client in cygwin, and the
'windows native' commandline client in the windows command shell. Do
not mix them up, as they are very different beasts. The 'windows
native' client isn't using plain old stdio to read/write, but actual
win32 API calls to read/write to the windows console.
