Hmm. Recently we had an NT system which was frequently BSOD'ing
(not Cygwin-related). It had Norton Systemworks installed.
When this was uninstalled, the problem went away. I suspect
the file deletion recovery extensions were to blame.
If you are having stability problems with any Windows product,
it is adviasable to (a) (as Chris suggested) ensure you have
the latest service packs/hotfixes/security upgrades and
(b) remove or disable any 3rd party software which runs
in the background (eg Antivirus, filestore extensions,
system monitoring etc.).
