Thanks for the detailed debugging information.  I will look into this.

I should point out that I use zsh *all* of the time on Cygwin.  It is essentially
my "test" system for new versions of the DLL since it uses so much of the UNIX
api -- especially with regard to signals.

I don't have any problems running zsh but there were some signal fixes that went
in after 1.1.0 was released.  Could you try a recent Cygwin snapshot and let know if it works any better?
