Thank you very much for quick answer.
I had a problem which you have described in your answer - several versions
of cygwin1.dll on my computer: one in c:\windows\ and the other in c:\cygwin\bin\.
Of course I have read about such problem on www.cygwin.com, but I
thought that my problem is not in this, and I did not check it. I mistakenned :).
It appears I installed some program which used the library cygwin1.dll
and it was recorded in directory c:\windows\. Of course it has older
version than 1.5.19-4.
