   The only way I found to break out of this was to bring up the debugger,
   close it, then type Ctrl+C at the hung bash shell.  The bash shell
   appears to be fine at that point, but you can never close it (short of
-  kill it via the task manager).
-  This needs a better <wink> workaround (Python program or shell script
-  replacement).
-  Same thing if xcopy32 is used instead.

+  xcopy works OK directly from a bash shell.  The segfaults occur if it's
+  run via a makefile, or via a shell script.  Guessing a problem with I/O
+  redirection, since some other apps can't see keyboard input before the
+  hung stuff is killed.
+  Workaround:  xxcopy works fine <http://www.xxcopy.com/>; free for
+  personal use, but not for commercial use.  Rename it to xcopy.exe and
+  get it into your path before the native xcopy, or fiddle the XCOPY
+  defn in common.mk to use xxcopy instead of xcopy.
