Thank you for the snapshot link.

I am attaching the cygwin patch here. Please let me know if there are 
any comments or questions about any specific fixes.

Some notes:
  1. I have disabled the install_qa_checks on Cygwin for now, since that 
takes forever to complete even for very small packages.
  2. Also, the unlocking for tuples almost invariably fails on Windows. 
However, that does not create any trouble in most cases. I have changed 
the code so that such failures are silently ignored. Otherwise, it is 
very annoying to see the builds failing for no apparent reason.
  3. Move cannot be performed on windows if the target file exists. I 
have ignored such rename attempts.

Thanks,
- Nimish
