It is my first attempt at creating a patch and I am having some
problems. My environment is Win32 and Cygwin. According to the wiki
there are problems using git under Cygwin which I do have experienced.
Next is to use git under a simple Windows command window which I did.
It seems to have done most, if not all the job but I am getting an
error message. Is this a problem?
