Unfortunately I have not been able to reproduce this issue on my end
with either 32-bit or 64-bit Cygwin. What happens when you run
"/usr/sbin/smartctl.exe -i /dev/sda -j" (assuming /dev/sda is a disk
that Cygwin sees)? Note that the output may include the drive serial
number - make sure to blank it out if you post the output here.

If this is on 32-bit Cygwin, this looks like the good old fork bug to
me, seeing as you're getting "11 Resource temporarily unavailable" when
attempting to fork. I can't remember what worked to fix that for me the
last time I had it, might have been antivirus software exceptions. I
would say that maybe some packages need updating, but given you've been
releasing packages in the last few days, I highly doubt your Cygwin
install is out of date.

If the smartctl command works, could you try running the tests again please?
