Weird, because the script is fairly simple, the includes look like:
use Getopt::Long;
use File::Find;
use File::Basename;
use Archive::Zip qw(:ERROR_CODES :CONSTANTS);

Which I would not have suspected of causing problems. And this worked 
fine for a few months until I updated Cygwin recently.

I think I'll wait until the next Cygwin release comes out, the install 
instructions for the snapshots looks a little hairy.

Thanks for your help.
