to provide enough information about your system configuration for us to be
able to help you.  Note that the output of "cygcheck -svr" should be
*attached* as an uncompressed text attachment, not included inline.

However, I'd venture a guess: if you're running Cygwin 1.5.18, I've had
consistent problems with that version and inability to fork in certain
circumstances (that I couldn't definitely pinpoint).  I've had no such
problems since upgrading to the latest snapshots.  Try the 20051024 DLL
snapshot and see if it makes things better for you.
