Here on Win 7 64bit I have:
$ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-6.1-WOW64 darkstar 1.7.9(0.237/5/3) 2011-03-29 10:10 i686 Cygwin

Cygwin Package Information
Package              Version        Status
cygwin               1.7.9-1        OK
octave               3.4.0-3        OK
gnuplot              4.4.0-1        OK

I did rebaseall and I still get the error:

octave:1> t = 0:2*pi/100:2*pi;
octave:2> plot(t,sin(t))
error: Invalid call to strcat.  Correct usage is:

 -- Function File:  strcat (S1, S2, ...)

I do have Norton running (not possible to turn off) and I have had
some bloda things but rebaseall seems to clear all that I have
noticed, but I suppose bloda is not ruled out. This is a new laptop
and my current installation may not be as stable as possible yet. Last
week I spent an hour tracking down a stray space being added to my
path that prevented lapack from being seen.

Right now everything, other than octave, seems to be fine and I've
spent most of the day at a bash command line banging g++ et all; the
system seems stable and fully operational.
