This is what I said:

"Couldn't you just initialize prefix prior to calling shared_name?"

I wasn't saying that it should be on the cygheap or that it should be
only initialized once per cygwin "session".  I was saying that it could
be calculated once per program, prior to calling shared_name, avoiding
the test entirely.
