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

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.
