bash 2.05a command completion spec bug

Command completion specs causes bash 2.05a specifically *and* Cygwin
in general to behave "poorly."  By "poorly," I mean that bash becomes
unusable after attempting command completion and Cygwin cannot start
new processes:

$ ps
C:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe: *** mount table size version mismatch detected - 0x11/0x4068.
You have multiple copies of cygwin1.dll on your system.
Search for cygwin1.dll using the Windows Start->Find/Search facility
and delete all but the most recent version.  The most recent version *should*
reside in x:\cygwin\bin, where 'x' is the drive on which you have
installed the cygwin distribution.
5895398 [main] bash 1648 sync_with_child: child 1560(0x1D4) died before initialization with status code 0x1
5901389 [main] bash 1648 sync_with_child: *** child state waiting for longjmp
bash: fork: Resource temporarily unavailable

After killing all Cygwin processes, the above problem is cleared.

The problem can be reproduced by the following:

    $ # save the attachment as
    $ .
    $ cvs stat<TAB>
    $ # try typing some more characters

The above procedure worked fine under bash 2.05-8.

This problem seems to be reminiscent of a previous bash bug that
I reported:

Is Cygwin bash 2.05a missing any patches?
