Intermittent perl crash

I apologize in advance for the scanty information here; I'm hoping someone
can suggest how to narrow this down.
I've begun using Cygwin Perl regularly in the past few days (previously used
only AS) and I'm finding fairly simple scripts crashing intermittently with
3 [main] perl 4348 D:\Local\Cygwin\bin\perl.exe: *** fatal error - unable to
to same address as parent(0x260000) != 0x370000
The shell which launched the script will hang for several minutes, and then
I will see:
9 [main] perl 2092 child_info::sync: wait failed, pid 4348, Win32
265 [main] perl 2092 fork: child 4348 - died waiting for dll loading,
By "fairly simple" I mean ones I'm working on that at this point are only
reading arguments and doing string operations. (Oh, and globbing an argument
and doing "-f" tests on the results). I've tried trimming them down, etc.,
but the problem is intermittent and I can't get anything reproduceable.
Any hints welcome, and TIA.
