in reply to IO::Pty with Cygwin - can't install

Hi all, apologies in advance for any errors/omissions -this is my first perl question ever :)) I want to deploy cygwin with perl modules preinstalled, and I need to include the Net::SSH::Expect module which has dependency on IO::Pty/Tty but I am having similar issues wth /dev/ttyx hanging during the build with cpan. I know I can build manually and leave out the 'make test' but I would prefer a fix rather than a workaround I have installed cpanplus and have managed to build successfully by pressing ^C when the 'open /dev/ttyx/' freezes and continue with the install.
