That's under the c:\cygwin64\bin directory, but doesn't tell me anything
about the rest of your system. Which is why I asked for cygcheck output,
but you seemed to have missed that point.

No, you are misdiagnosing your problem.  It doesn't matter what version
of cygwin wget was built against, what matters is what version of
cygwin1.dll is being loaded when your script is forking, and if your
PATH happens to be modified in such a way that wget is attempting to
load a different cygwin1.dll than the shell running the script, such
that there are now two different cygwin1.dlls loaded at the same time.

So I'll ask again: please run cygcheck as directed by the mailing list

and attach its output, to prove to us what cygcheck thinks about your
system, not what you think about your system.
