Thanks for the assistance Ken, I appreciate it. I was able to uninstall
Symantec Endpoint Protection, so the only piece of software that I may
have from the BLODA list is now NVIDIA Geforce. I took your advice about
experimentation, and I discovered some more information.

I'm afraid I still have no explanation (except possible BLODA) for the
aborts that you're getting. After about six days of experimentation on
my system, here's what I see:
1. No aborts or crashes.
2. Lisp errors involving timers, similar to yours, but only on 64-bit
Cygwin and only when using Tramp.
3. With a build from the emacs trunk, the Lisp errors are gone.
In a few days I'll have time to make a build from the trunk available to
you in case you want to see if that solves your problem.
