Hopefully this problem has been corrected in the readline-4.2-1 package
released today. (At least, the functions which were previously private
have been declared in readline.h (e.g. made public) and are now exported
from the dll.  (Chet did this within the official readline sources; they
are not cygwin-specific changes).

Earnie, can you try to build a recent bash --with-installed-readline ?
