Since a little time, I'm facing strange problems with cygwin, when
compiling software. After a certain time, I'm getting fork() error
messages and that "ressources are not available".
I have NO kind of the mentioned "BLODA" software installed on my system
and my cygwin installation worked now for nearly 4 years.
(Windows XP SP2, all security updates)
I had the same issue and just tracked it down to the ATI Catalyst 8.3
and 8.4 drivers. I had no problem with the 7.10 version, but with both
8.3 and 8.4, my PIDs were never reused and doing a large compile (in my
case, subversion) would cause the error you mentioned.
I uninstalled the drivers and installed the drivers from Windows Update
(version 8.421.0.0). I'm not sure if it's the Catalyst Control Center or
some other part of the 8.4 full driver package, but this solved my problem.
Perhaps another BLODA? :-(
