Thank You for you help and advice.

in theory , you should have only one called "Cygwin Terminal"

And Yes I have only one "Cygwin Terminal. The version I am currently running is 1.1.2. The other shortcut is cygwin.bat.

what is the output of " ls -l $(which gcc)" and "ls /" ?

I wasn't sure if you wanted the file path or a screen shot. The file path is: C:\cygwin\home\AL It is the same for both. ls -i just gives me more information then ls but the files that are displayed are the same and in the same location.

?? On my system : $ ls -l $(which gcc) lrwxrwxrwx 1 marco None 21 Nov 13 2011 /usr/bin/gcc -> /etc/alternatives/gcc

"Run cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck.out and include that file as an
attachment in your report. Please do not compress or otherwise encode
the output. Just attach it as a straight text file so that it can be
easily viewed. "

I have attached the requested file as a .txt.

cygcheck.txt <>

have you noticed :
   "Warning: There are multiple cygwin1.dlls on your path"

  2604k 2011/03/29 C:\cygwin\home\AL\cygwin1.dll - os=4.0 img=1.0 sys=4.0
                   "cygwin1.dll" v0.0 ts=2011/3/29 9:10
     Cygwin DLL version info:
         DLL version: 1.7.9

  2791k 2012/10/19 C:\cygwin\bin\cygwin1.dll - os=4.0 img=1.0 sys=4.0
                   "cygwin1.dll" v0.0 ts=2012/10/19 13:39
     Cygwin DLL version info:

you need to remove the "C:\cygwin\home\AL\cygwin1.dll" This is likely the responsible of your problem.

And even beyond this, the cygcheck output shows that the "update" done was actually an installation in C:\cygwin, which left the original installation in C:\cygwin\home as orphaned. Best to just get rid of the whole installation there unless there is something that's really needed. And if there is, I recommend copying over the needed data files to the new location and deleting the old.
