Don't understand why the following segfault under Cygwin when you have a
directory of 21 entries (see example below)

$ cat test.rb
dirs = Dir.glob("*/")                                                  
      
dirs.sort { | x, y | File.new(x).ctime <=> File.new(y).ctime }
dirs.each { | x | puts x + " " + File.new(x).ctime.to_s }

but the following doesn't

$ cat test2.rb
dirs = Dir.glob("*/")                                                  
      
dirs.sort { | x, y | File.ctime(x) <=> File.ctime(y) }
dirs.each { | x | puts x + " " + File.ctime(x).to_s }

Also, why does test.rb produce the following using a native windows
compile.

C:\DEVELO~1\cygwin\home\robertm\test>ruby test.rb
test.rb:2:in `initialize': Permission denied - a/ (Errno::EACCES)
        from test.rb:2:in `new'
        from test.rb:2
        from test.rb:2:in `sort'
        from test.rb:2

I tried to capture a back trace but when I ran it through gdb it ran
perfectly.
