Based on the error message, I assume you either have $TMPDIR set to /tmp,
or not set at all. What do the following commands say?
stat /tmp /tmp/m4-KJkmd5
getfacl /tmp /tmp/m4-KJkmd5 "$HOME"
There is something going on with permissions. Another thing to check is
if you have any rogue drivers that might be interfering with normal cygwin
operation; the list of known culprits includes:
Sonic Solutions burning software containing DLA component
Norton/MacAffee/Symantec antivirus or antispyware
Logitech webcam software with "Logitech process monitor" service
Kerio, Agnitum or ZoneAlarm Personal Firewall
Iolo System Mechanic/AntiVirus/Firewall
Embassy Trust Suite fingerprint reader software wxvault.dll
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
