Well, your cygcheck output warns that you have multiple cygwin1.dlls in your
path.  That seems to be true since there's are 3 different places that
cygwin1.dll is found.  Get rid of all the duplicates.  Also of note is that
you claim to have installed 1.5.23-2 but your cygcheck suggests otherwise.
All the cygwin1.dlls you have are 1.5.18.  Unless this makes sense to you,
you may be better off cleaning up and starting over.
