Are you using 1.3.2 or a developers snapshot?
AFAIKS, this shouldn't happen with 1.3.2 but it could happen with
the current developer snapshots.
If you're using 1.3.2, be sure to set CYGWIN=nontsec and call
strace -o foo.trace c:/cygwin/bin/touch foo
then grep for `alloc_sd' in foo.trace:
grep alloc_sd foo.trace
If you get an output, something is actually wrong.
