I am almost sure that your view as R developer and mine as
package maintainer for several math packages in cygwin do not match.

If speed was the only parameter for a solution choice ,
we should all only use Linux for math and Windows for games.


it is clear that R expectation from a BLAS library is different from
the netlib BLAS reference implementation and I presume it happens also
on any Linux using the netlib BLAS, so I do not see it as a specific
cygwin bug.

Regards and Thanks for your time
