As far as I know, this was fixed in Cygwin 1.7.2. Neither the script here

or the script here

trigger the problem for me.

What version of Cygwin are you using? (Perhaps you can just attach the
output of cygcheck, following there directions here: If you are using the latest version,
can you try the scripts mentioned above? If they work but you still see
a problem, it would be very helpful if you could modify one of them to
reproduce the problem you're seeing.
