Sorry Dan, I'll put a more complete description in the bug report.
This issue, from what I can tell only happens with very recent Cygwin
versions. I'm running 1.7.9. When running the com/sun/jdi tests in a
batch, in samevm mode, this test leave behind a file, NUL, in the
scratch directory that cannot be deleted. This causes the remaining
tests to also fail.
Thanks for the review,
