(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.

I updated to 1.7.7 (took a couple tries on Windows 2003 Server, but it's good now) and everything seems to be working.  I did have a bit of a hiccup with the updated version of 'svn' behaving differently when exporting, but I've worked that out in the build scripts.  Sorry for the false alarm!
