This is RC1.

test_subprocess fails. IMO due to the fact that there
is a directory called "Python" in the python source

The fix should be that sys.executable will return the
name with the '.exe' suffix on cygwin.

Attached log of running the test.

Cygwin recently changed their behaviour.  I have an
outstanding hack to fix this.  Patches would help get things
fixed up.

Attached a patch, test_subprocess now passes.

Since this is not a subprocess bug per se, I'm letting someone else take care of this one.

Can anyone confirm this? It'll be closed soon otherwise.
