Here are some more data points:

1. I have access to four computers with Cygwin installations, and I can 
reproduce the problem on all four (including the fact that the problem 
occurs with the 9-17 snapshot but not the 9-12 snapshot).  The computers 
all have similar setups and all run XP SP3, so this may not mean much.

2. To rule out the most common form of BLODA, I uninstalled the 
anti-virus software on one of the computers.  This made no difference.

3. All four systems have two parallel Cygwin installations.  I removed 
the second installation on one of them.  This made no difference.

I realize that you can't debug this if you can't reproduce it.  Is there 
anything I can try?  I don't have much programming/debugging experience, 
but I'm pretty good at following directions.
