For the record, what we "always ask for" is mentioned here:


In particular, we ask for cygcheck information attached to the email.

The fact that you have a bash variable named PATH doesn't mean that you
have an environment variable named PATH.

It might be useful to see what your full envirnoment looks like at the
command prompt by typing "set".  Then we'd see everything, including the
PATH, or Path, or pAth.

But the fact that, from your cygcheck, there don't seem to be any
environment variables being imported is rather odd.

This is suspicious.  Anything that I see on the web regarding the above
exception points to something odd on the host computer.  You might try
searching on that string and 0xc0150004 and see if anything that google
finds relates to your system.
