	I've seen similar problems with bash about 2-3% of the time since the
last update.  Usually it's when I have alot of programs loaded (but no where 
near filling memory), but maybe has something to do with running cygwin services 
that usually keep cygwin libs in memory?  I just noticed, that in order to try
to get stability in a game, I stopped all non-essential procs, including 
background cygwin service(s), and haven't had any of those error since.  But
too little variability in my config since minimizing it to tell if that was what
made the problem go away or if it is just coincidence...
