This will cause a cygwin1.dll collision between the two versions
Nothing is guarantee to work fine
Can you elaborate? Cygwin supports multiple installations just fine
these days. Use of a .bat file (an intervening cmd.exe process) should
isolate the environments for this test.
Regardless, I was also able to produce a hang in bash running the same
.bat file from a cmd.exe prompt using only the snapshot install and the
copied bash.exe, false.exe, and dependent binaries - no mintty. The
hung bash.exe process eventually timed out with an error message:
5 [unknown (0x176C)] bash 2000 sig_send: wait for sig_complete event
failed, signal 6, rc 258, Win32 error 0
