OK - I was able to reproduce the issue too

I start the batches with the following command (without /b):
   start test2.bat
about 10 times.
And after 7 minutes all batches are stopped with the following error:
"Für diesen Befehl ist nicht genügend Speicher verfügbar." (german WIN7)
==> "not enough memory for that command"

But the memory is freed again and win7/64 SP1 works fine. (just for information
- cause your system went haywire).

OK it really seems to be win7 problem.

I'm really glad to hear that this is not a cygwin error.

But thanks a lot for figuring that out.
