Hi folks ,

I am hitting the following problem while using gmake :-

617 [exiting thread] gmake 9576 cygthread::stub: erroneous thread
activation , name is NULL .

Now I am indeed using an old cygwin version and can not update it due to
dependency issues . Do you have a workaround for this problem ?

As per my understanding this problem will not be seen if we limit the
maximum number of threads for a process on cygwin (this will of course
make it slower , but that is fine ) . Am I Correct ?

If yes , how can we do it for cygwin ?

Thanks for all your help.

Thanks and Regards,
