I have tracked down the reason for this. I was trying to use the Berkeley
tools and when I did some commands (like ls) is when it popped up. It seems
that when I installed OpenSSH it slao put some such tools in it's area,
which is at the head of the PATH.. Looks like it wants cygintl-2.dll.
I have seen reference that seems to say all you need to do is put the dll in
the Windblows/system or Windblows/system32 dir?
