Absolutely.  After updating cygwin, I reboot and run rebaseall -v
first thing.

I have no idea how to make a reproducible test case of my system,
composed of 50+ repos, is large and not open source.  We have shell
scripts that we use to apply git commands to each repo.

One thing I've mentioned before: the problem became much worse when we
switched development to a 16-core machine.  It's running Server 2008

Does anyone at Red Hat run on such a large-core machine?

The machine has been memtested, btw, and msysgit on the exact same
repos operates flawlessly, in my tests so far.  All other non-cygwin
software on the machine works perfectly, too.

If you think a bug report without a reproducible test case would be
useful, let me know what info I can provide.
