Unfortunately the newest cygwin.dll snapshot:
CYGWIN_NT-5.1 WAW0968D 1.5.15s(0.126/4/2) 20050408 16:35:04 i686 unknown
does not solved my problem.
Background: I use a bash script that helps to compute 100 seti work units in
offline mode. As you probably know seti process consumes all the available
CPU time (it also eats about 15 MB of RAM), but it's priority is low, so the
overall performance is not so much lowered.
Test case: I am starting bash script, which takes a look into the
directories with work units and then it starts seti process in the first
directory containing work_unit.sah file. The bash script works in
foreground, so I can easily stop seti process by simply pressing Ctrl-C.
With versions prior to 1.5.12 stopping my script took lower than 1 second,
with newer ones it takes minutes. Rxvt window freezes. When I click on it
the cursor turns into sand-glass and the rxvt window gets additional text
"(Not responding)" in caption. It also happened that seti process did not
close the result_header.sah file correctly, so next time it had to start
form scratch - hours of computations were lost.
Because of above problem I have rolled back to 1.5.12 by swapping cygwin
