I know that with current Cygwin both instances will open the same shared
memory region but expect a different format of the contents. That's why
I proposed making each cygwin1.dll derive the name of the shared memory
region from its native WIN32 path. I'm interested in failures that would
still occur if the two cygwin DLLs used different shared memory regions
and registry keys.
