Yes, but only with Cygwin 1.1.4.  The above error was reported to the
Cygwin list by Volker:

I just downloaded cygwin-1.1.5-3 and was able to duplicate the problem.
I am beginning to debug now and will report back my findings.

BTW, what version of Cygwin are you using?  1.1.4, a snapshot, CVS, etc?
