How are you starting the script? From a cygwin bash shell, command
prompt, or clicking on the .pl file? The references to
"D:\Local\Cygwin\bin\perl.exe" make me think the script is being
called through a windows mechanism instead of a cygwin one.
Maybe the .dll messages mean something to someone else?
