All I'm asking is where can I get an earlier version of cygwin!!!!

If you need more info then here's the post from htdig
htdig.exe refuses to run on Cygwin 
htdig.exe crashes with DB2 error. Permissions are fine 
and the script is being run as administrator. Both 3.1.6 
and 3.2.* report this problem with the latest version of 

I've also tried clearing everything inside db directory in 
vain. It does create db.docdb and file and 
then bombs out.

$ rundig
DB2 problem...: PANIC: Invalid argument
DB2 problem...: /opt/www/htdig/db/db.docdb: write failed 
for page 1
htdig: Unable to open/create document 
database '/opt/www/htdig/db/db.docdb'

htmerge: Unable to open word list 
file '/opt/www/htdig/db/db.wordlist'.
Did you index anything?
Check your config file and try running htdig again.

DB2 problem...: /opt/www/htdig/db/db.docdb: dirty flag 
set for readonly file pa
