Yeah, I normally would rebaseall after seeing a forking issue, but this
one wasn't a familiar error message. But I guess the new cygwin version
just has slightly different error messages to indicate a need for rebasing.
I don't know if this is a good idea, but what if this type of error
message included a suggestion to try "rebaseall"? Might stop messages
like mine in the future.
