I think the package you installed is expecting a newer version of the
cygwin1.dll than your 3PP provided.

Run setup and update only the cygwin package (making sure you can restore
back to the way things were in case the third-party stuff you are using
is for some reason forward-incompatible (which it shouldn't be)).
