Cygwin Dirmngr and TBB for windows


I'm trying to get Cygwin dirmngr to work with  Tor Browser for Windows.

Following some discussion on the gnupg user list it looks like that the connect(2) function in Cygwin does not return the proper error code:


On the above link one of the dev suggest that connect(2) returns EPERMS instead of ECONREFUSED.

If ECONREFUSED is not returned when port 9050 is queried the fallback code in dirmngr will not be executed and port 9150 will never be used.

Using dirmngr on Debian with TBBfor linux works as expected.

Can anyone confirm that and subcequently make Cygwin return the proper error code?

Any help is appriciated.
