Sorry for the poor report, probably I could provide more details if

Give a complete recipe for reproducing the problem, preferably
starting with `emacs -Q'.
Attached the output from cygcheck. For some reason it dumped core too:
$ cygcheck -s -v -r> /tmp/cygcheck.out
I wonder if this is the same problem as the one that was reported in
and fixed in the 2012-05-14 snapshot.
Other programs seem to work normally (though I haven't tried many).
The steps to reproduce the problem with emacs-24 are:
1. start emacs: emacs -nw -Q
2. C-x C-f C-g
Here emacs either dumps core or hangs.
I can reproduce this on XP but not on Windows 7. And I see from your
(partial) cygcheck output that you're running Vista. I'll try to debug
this on my XP system.
