I'm glad that worked for you, but it may not a good long-term solution
unless you're willing to use old packages, too. New APIs are added to
the DLL from time to time, and that may cause packages compiled against
the new DLL that use the new APIs to fail if you keep the old DLL
Personally, I would use the CYGWIN=disable_pcon work-around and help the
maintainers track down the root cause of the issue so it can be fixed.
