emacs problem

I'm starting to see this error quite a bit in the terminal window I started
emacs from:

0 [main] emacs-X11 19400 C:\tools\cygwin\bin\emacs-X11.exe: *** fatal error in
forked process - failed to create new win32 semaphore, Win32 error 87

It seems to take an indeterminate amount of time before it starts happening,
and it _might_ be related to running Gnus, but once it starts, it seems that
almost everything I do in emacs outputs another line like above to the
terminal window.

Any idea how to debug this?

I'm using emacs version "GNU Emacs 24.3.1 (i686-pc-cygwin, GTK+ Version 3.6.4)
 of 2013-03-11 on fiona"
