Obviously, it is the first thing I thought and checked. To summarize, I 
did the following:

wget http://cygwin.com/snapshots/cygwin1-20100820.dll.bz2
bunzip2 cygwin1-20100820.dll.bz2
chmod +x cygwin1-20100820.dll

and the same for 20100814, 20100816, 20100818 snapshots, and for the DLL 
you propose here


Then from a DOS box (but also with Explorer)

cd \cygwin-2\bin
rename cygwin1.dll cygwin1.dll.orig
copy ..\tmp\cygwin1-20100814.dll cygwin1.dll

With 20100814, 20100816, 20100818 snapshots and newer-cygwin1.dll, 
Cygwin.bat starts and works.

With 20100820 snapshot Cygwin.bat does not start and Windows says 

"Impossibile trovare il punto d'ingresso CreateProcessAsUserW della 
procedura nella libreria di collegamento dinamico KERNEL32.dll"

which Google translates as

"Can not find entry point CreateProcessAsUserW procedure in the dynamic 
link library KERNEL32.dll"

As you can see a mystery...

Really the Windows messages says 'KERNEL32.dll' with 'dll' in lowercase, 
and beside this, searching ('all directories visible') 'kernl32', I find
