I'm having a problem with Cygwin's "tail" utility. I use it to monitor a log
file of a program running on a Linux machine from a Win2K machine. The Linux
machine's file system is made available via Samba. The problem is: While the
initial output of 10 lines (or whatever I specify) is happily printed, newly
appended lines never make it to the screen. In other words, "tail -f"
doesn't follow. I've already tried "--follow=name", but to no avail.
