While the Septuagint seems to ignore the gloss in the Hebrew of this verse and makes an attempt to translate it literally, early translators of the Scripture into Aramaic understood that there were problems, and attempted to fill in the blanks. All of this is discussed at length by Clifton Emahiser in his paper, The Problem With Genesis 4:1.
Hope this helps,

I went to this link @ Clifton's site and I don't see that it is so difficult to render as the truth. In fact I am going to see if I can find a down/load of these targums and interpreter's Bible. @ eSword you build a really nice module for research...if you're unaware of eSword. Anyone ??? got the links.
