cygwin1.dll (v1.1.2): dup2() with invalid newfd lead to exception: STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION


I have loaded the last version of the environment CygWin and attempted to compile SQUID-2.3.STABLE3. In the configurator SQUID there is a piece of the code: " checking Maximum number of filedescriptors we can open ", this code utillize the function dup2(), which one with invalid value of argument reduces to in crash of the program instead of returning an error code.

Piece of this code:

#include "confdefs.h"

#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <sys/time.h>   /* needed on FreeBSD */
#include <sys/param.h>
#include <sys/resource.h>
main() {
        FILE *fp;
        int i,j;
#if __CYGWIN32__
    /* getrlimit and sysconf returns bogous values on cygwin32.
     * Number of fds is virtually unlimited in cygwin (sys/param.h)
    i = NOFILE;
    struct rlimit rl;
#if defined(RLIMIT_NOFILE)
    if (getrlimit(RLIMIT_NOFILE, &rl) < 0) {
        perror("getrlimit: RLIMIT_NOFILE");
    } else {
        rl.rlim_cur = rl.rlim_max;      /* set it to the max */
        if (setrlimit(RLIMIT_NOFILE, &rl) < 0) {
            perror("setrlimit: RLIMIT_NOFILE");
#elif defined(RLIMIT_OFILE)
    if (getrlimit(RLIMIT_OFILE, &rl) < 0) {
        perror("getrlimit: RLIMIT_OFILE");
    } else {
        rl.rlim_cur = rl.rlim_max;      /* set it to the max */
        if (setrlimit(RLIMIT_OFILE, &rl) < 0) {
            perror("setrlimit: RLIMIT_OFILE");
#endif /* RLIMIT_NOFILE */
#endif /* HAVE_SETRLIMIT */
        /* by starting at 2^14, we will never get higher
        than 2^15 for SQUID_MAXFD */
        i = j = 1<<14;
        while (j) {
                j >>= 1;
                if (dup2(0, i) < 0) {
                        i -= j;
                } else {
                        i += j;
        fp = fopen("conftestval", "w");
        fprintf (fp, "%d\n", i);

The elementary test routine resulting in to the same result (under Borland 5.02 all is correct - " Ret val =-1, errno=0 "):

#include <stdio.h>
#include <io.h>
#include <errno.h>

void main(void)
        printf("Ret val=%d, errno=%d", dup2(0, 1<<14), errno);
