I'm quite happy to find this thread - I thought I was the one who messed things
I experience exactly the same problem : XP64, recently updated cygwin -> bash
exits with code 128 when trying to execute anything (except builtins, of
course). Same thing for gcc (tried from emacs too).
To answer a question that was asked in the "xp64 fails with latest download"
thread (which deals with the same problem) : I have only one cygwin1.dll file on
Reverting to cygwin 1.5.23 worked.

If you have a patch working, pease go ahead. Reverting to 1.5.23 is not a patch,
but a workaround :-) Meanwhile, I'll stick with my good'ol'32-bit laptop...
I have no working patch, I was going to use this problem as an opportunity for
my first attempt to build and debug the cygwin DLL (while maybe even charging a

Looking again, I see that this might not be that case, so I'll see what I can do

By the way, in case it's a version consistency problem, what mirror are you
using ? I'm using ftp://mirror.cict.fr/ - nearest from home.
