I have a cygwin terminal window open and I try to execute a perl program
and get the following message:

5 [main] perl 8172 C:\cygwin\bin\perl.exe: *** fatal error -
cygheap base mismatch detected - 0x61239790/0xC79790.
This problem is probably due to using incompatible versions of the
cygwin DLL.
Search for cygwin1.dll using the Windows Start->Find/Search facility
and delete all but the most recent version. The most recent version
reside in x:\cygwin\bin, where 'x' is the drive on which you have
installed the cygwin distribution. Rebooting is also suggested if you
are unable to find another cygwin DLL.

The cygwin1.dll is in the c:\cygwin\bin directory and additionally on a
different place at c:\Program Files\openFT\bin\cygwin1.dll which is not
in my PATH.
(Both files are identical).

At the time of the error I had a second cygwin terminal already open.
After the failure in the first window I executed the command in the
second one and it executed successfully.
The funny thing is: If I try in the first window again, it runs fine....

a) Why?
b) What do I have to change to make it run always?

Things I tried:
Reboot, rebaseAll.

Any hints appreciated.
