Hello group,
I have a fresh installation of cygwin/ (cygcheck returns following for
cygwin1.dll: cygwin1.dll - os=4.0 img=1.0 sys=4.0 "cygwin1.dll" v0.0
ts=2013-07-22 16:06)/cygwin-X (1.14.2-1 built 2013-07-08)  and
following happens:
upon attempt to execute startxwin.exe  get following error, while
startxwin attempt to execute xterm:

 xterm 5508 child_info_fork::abort: C:\nobackup\cygwin\bin\cygz.dll:
Loaded to different address: parent(0x320000) != child(0x3B0000)
xterm: Error 29, errno 11: Resource temporarily unavailable
Reason: spawn: fork() failed

while it is clear what happens, what is not clear is how to resolve
it, so that it does not happen anymore?
