Nope it's definitely failing. I've used both the cygwin ps and the
Windows task manager. bbackupd is not running.
Also running "cygrunsrv" bombs with:
"cygrunsrv: Error starting a service: QueryServiceStatus: Win32 error
1053: The server did not respond to a start or control request in a
Using the administrative tools/services in the control panel also
freezes when I attempt to start the service from there.

Hmmm. There is a file there which contains the message re: random seed

I suspect there must be something wrong with my cygwin installation and
something went wrong during compilation. I've done a couple of fresh
installs of Cygwin from the net to try to eliminate that as an issue
but maybe I'm missing a needed package.
I've copied my cygwin binaries over to a Win98 machine and that displays
exactly the same behaviour (ie. exiting immediately. Obviously I can't
run that as a service under 98)
Would someone please be so kind as to mail me a copy of a cygwin
bbackupd.exe binary that they have working. Thanks
