Upon upgrading to cygwin-1.7.8-1 from 1.7.7-1 whenever I write to /etc/hosts
using vim-7.3.003-1 it immediately catches deadly signal SEGV even though the
change(s) are successful:
$ vi /etc/hosts
Vim: Caught deadly signal SEGV
Yet when making any changes within /cygdrive/c/cygwin this behavior doesn't
$ vi ~/test1
"test1" [New File] 1 line, 21 characters written
I also tested a write to /cygdrive/c/autoexec.bat which didn't invoke the signal
$ vi /cygdrive/c/autoexec.bat
"/cygdrive/c/autoexec.bat" [dos format] 1 line, 74 characters written
This behavior didn't exist whatsoever when using cygwin-1.7.7-1.
The operating system is Windows Vista Home Premium SP2.
