Sounds OK to me.  Try stripping it.

Yes, Cygwin doesn't like addresses.  It prefers locales of enumeration.
It's a subtle difference but very important to Cygwin.  We've tried for
years to make it switch to using addresses but it's just stubborn.  We've
tried everything.  Locking it in it's room.  Sending it to bed without any
supper.  Even boot camps.  Nothing worked.  At this point, we've just 
given up on it.

Perhaps it's best if you just tell us what the actual error message was
and when it happened.  We may not be good at curing Cygwin of it's stubborn
ways but after all these years, there are some people on this list that are
good at deciphering it's "moods".
