Normally you don't ever need to think about rebasing on x86_64.  The 
perpetual postinstall script /etc/postinstall/0p_000_autorebase.dash 
should handle everything without any manual intervention.  You might try 
running that script (and the rebaselst script that it calls) line by 
line (preferably in a dash shell started directly from Windows, with no 
other Cygwin processes running) to see if you can figure out what's 
going wrong.
