I solved the problem already, sorry for the noise. Describing a problem to
others often helps yourself if you do it properly I guess. ;)

When checking for the 'cygwin1.dll' file in C:\cygwin\bin, I discovered that
there also was a file named 'cygwin1.dll.new' in there. I made a backup of
my cygwin1.dll, deleted it and renamed the 'cygwin1.dll.new' file to
'cygwin1.dll'. Then I recompiled my program and now everything works fine.
I have no idea what changed/renamed the files in the first place though...
