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
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.

and proceeds to consume about 10% of CPU for like 10 minutes. Am I just
supposed to let it crank along?
No. This looks like you really got 2 cygwin1.dll's running.
Odd. Somebody seems to have put something in my Views directory - a directory I normally use for Clearcase views. But what's in there is not a Clearcase view! And it contained several cygwin1.dll's. So I blew it way. Sorry for the confusion...

An error? Impossible! My modem is error correcting.
