Hope this helps someone and please update the BLODA list. I got an error message: "fork: child -1 - died waiting for longjmp before initialization" when running Cygwin GCC 3.4.4 from Eclipse on a new Dell Latitude E6420 and E6520 laptops with Windows 7 64-bit. Installing the latest Cygwin 1.7 did not help. Uninstalling the software listed in http://cygwin.com/faq/faq.using.html#faq.using.bloda also did not prove useful. After search and trial, I found that it's caused by NVIDIA graphics driver for NVS 4200M laptop graphics card. The laptops had version 22.214.171.12496 of the driver installed and after upgrading the driver to the latest from NVIDIA website (ver 126.96.36.19933) the problem was resolved.
