Except this has nothing to do with linux - this is unix behaviour that
goes "all the way back", it's part of the process model.  It's part of
what exiting *does*, so it *is* a bug in cygwin if it isn't doing the
cleanup (and really, cygwin does so many other bizarre things under
the covers to create Unix/POSIX semantics in the Very Different win32
environment, I'm more than a little surprised it isn't doing this
already... skeptical, even, though I haven't been deep inside cygwin
in years.)
