I'm still seeing some weird stuff in the latest snapshot. This is
a fresh install, with nothing other than the Base category + git,
and substituting just cygwin1.dll.
$ git clone git://git.sv.gnu.org/libsigsegv.git
Initialized empty Git repository in /home/eblake/libsigsegv/.git/
fatal: write error (Socket operation on non-socket)
$ uname -a

Running the above through strace generates more than half a
megabyte, but the point where 'errno 108' occurs in the trace
is shortly after a call to dup2(3,4), so there may still be
some memory corruption impacting the fd table across forks.
