the 32bit has less memory space so it take a bit of file swapping when 
the data are large

run demo in build dir ?

1) remove any excessive libraries from your cygwin 32 bit install.
Recently for a similar reason I removed all libboost except the
last one, a good of previous version like libicuXX and similar
that accumulated in the years.

2) rebase the built dll's without storing permanently the addresses.
   Attached the script I am using for the scope

if [ $# -ne 1 ]
    echo "rebase the dll under PN-PV/build"
    echo "Usage : " $0 "PN-PV"
    exit 1

if [ ! -d $1/build ]
	echo $1"/build  missing, so quitting" 
	exit  1 

echo "rebasing " $1"/dist" 

find $1/build/ -name "*.dll" > dll-list.txt
rebase -O -T dll-list.txt
