Hi!

I have worked for the last 20 days with cygwin in order to make MySQL
GUI Client to work under Windoze.

You can not work with cygwin with Windoze version of MySQL. If nothing 
else, simply because cygwin requires .a libs and not dll's. Or at
least .a libs with exports for .dll.


I had to build two versions of mysql clients, from Unix versions. One
for Windoze text mode (command prompt) and the other for GUI
version. It is very difficult to work like me, with no support and
with out a single line of documentation.

So, the conclusion, you should consider buying support and / or docs
from Cygnus.
