I had precisely these symptoms (on xp), and found the answer in
3 [main] ? (948) C:\cygwin\usr\sbin\portmap.exe: *** fatal error -
system shared memory version mismatch detected - 0x8A88009C/0x2D1E009C.
This problem is probably due to using incompatible versions of the cygwin
Search for cygwin1.dll using the Windows Start->Find/Search facility
and delete all but the most recent version. The most recent version
reside in x:\cygwin\bin, where 'x' is the drive on which you have
installed the cygwin distribution. Rebooting is also suggested if you
are unable to find another cygwin DLL.
It worked much better after I removed my spurious copy of cygwin1.dll
