I have debugged that, see

I do not know the direct cause. The post above contains a modification to
tamper the problem.
Without anything else, 
cat /proc/*/maps | egrep '^[01]' | egrep -v cygdrive | egrep -v .exe$

Please, if you need again help with workarround or solution, ask a new
question to the folks on this forum.
