Problem with using stripped cygwin1.dll built from CVS

I'm having a problem when I try to use the stripped cygwin1.dll built 
from CVS. I'm seeing this problem both with the current binutils release 
and with the previous one.

When I attempt to start bash, I get the following error message from 
Windows in a pop-up window:

"The application or DLL c:\cygwin\bin\cygwin1.dll is not a valid Windows 
image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

I don't have any problem if I use the unstripped cygwin1.dll.

Is anyone else having or not having this problem?
