The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* cygutils-1.4.16-6
* cygutils-extra-1.4.16-6
* cygutils-x11-1.4.16-6

This update fixes two putclip issues reported by Takashi Yano:
1) Varying amounts of garbage after a putclip of non-ASCII chars, and
2) Occasional "Couldn't write CF_TEXT format to the clipboard" errors.

The first was caused by unterminated input strings; the second by
OpenClipboard() failing due to another process holding the clipboard.
There is now a specific diagnostic for that situation.

I'm aware of one more issue with putclip.  Intermittently, using putclip
to place non-ASCII characters on the clipboard instead places a number
of "?" characters.  If you de-select, re-select, and then repeat the
putclip command, the non-ASCII chars are placed as they should be.  This
occurs whether your "paste" operation is from the application menu (e.g.
Edit->Paste) or via the mouse.  I've tried a couple remedies but have
not yet found a solution.

Happy Monday,
