Is there a workaround for the problem mentioned in I suddenly started
getting this error like every other time I run perl.
When I run perlrebase I get:

3 [main] perl5.10.1 (6808) C:\Cygwin\bin\perl5.10.1.exe: *** fatal error - cygheap base mismatch detected - 0x612768B0/0xD268B0.
This problem is probably due to using incompatible versions of the cygwin DLL.
Search for cygwin1.dll using the Windows Start->Find/Search facility
and delete all but the most recent version. The most recent version *should*
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.

and proceeds to consume about 10% of CPU for like 10 minutes. Am I just supposed to let it crank along?

If it's zero degrees outside today and it's supposed to be twice as cold tomorrow, how cold is it going to be?
