Thanks.  Unfortunately it's not useful, becasue the actual problem
occured inside Cygserver.  What I need would be the problem captured
by running cygserver from the command line like this:

  $ strace -o cygserver.trace /usr/sbin/cygserver -d 2> cygserver.stderr

and see the two files cygserver.trace and cygserver.stderr.

That's a bit of a problem for debugging.  Did you notice my mail
https://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2014-11/msg00480.html, btw?
