Actually, as far as ifplatform is concerned, "Cygwin" isn't counted as  
being Windows. Which is a bit confusing, but there you go.

The shell escape part is more worrying. Try this:


No PDF should be produced, but the console output should contain the  
results of "ls". If you don't see that, then shell escape isn't active  
for you; if you *do* see it, then there's a problem with my package.

Let me know :)
