Hi Chris,

is the following related to your remaining problem?

With the latest patch (00/02/28 08:25:34: pinfo.cc, sigproc.cc)
I can't start any cygwin app anymore:

Eg. "bash -login" results in

D:\usr\bin\bash.exe: *** shared region is corrupted.  inited 10
   0 [main] ? 0 lock_pinfo_for_update: rc 0, pinfo_mutex 0xFFFFFFFF,
Win32 error 6

The strace output is an empty file, unfortunately.
