hmmm...well, what's going on is the server is not realizing it should be
managing these ports (for some reason).  for whatever reason, it must be
getting confused with the localhost/ entities...usually it
recognizes that they are one in the same, but in your case, it appears
it does not and it keeps redirecting the client to itself.  very
bizzare, given that you have 'master' in the config.

i'd love it if you could do two things for me....could you please do:

    /usr/local/sbin/conserver.exe -DDD > conserver.out

and then

    console -DDD a > console.out

and send both conserver.out and console.out to me?  there certainly
appears to be a bug...and hopefully that will shed some light (and
perhaps allow me to ask you further questions).  i have a feeling that
if you did had the same setup on linux, you wouldn't run into this
issue (works fine on my solaris box, for example).  so, most likely a
compatibility issue with cygwin or perhaps your cygwin config, but with
the info above, hopefully we can debug it (just send directly to me...we
can update the mailing list with the results in the end).
