I'm sorry to report that your patch does not fix the following rebase

Specifically, I'm getting the following:

    $ make
    building 'gdbm' extension
gcc -DNDEBUG -g -O3 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -DUSE_DL_IMPORT -I. -I/tmp/python-2.2.1-1/./Include -I/usr/local/include -IInclude/ -c /tmp/python-2.2.1-1/Modules/gdbmmodule.c -o build/temp.cygwin-1.3.13-i686-2.2/gdbmmodule.o
C:\cygwin\tmp\python-2.2.1-1\build\python.exe: *** unable to remap C:\cygwin\bin\cygcrypto.dll to same address as parent -- 0x420000
      8 [main] python 1548 sync_with_child: child 2772(0x100) died before initialization with status code 0x1
   9652 [main] python 1548 sync_with_child: *** child state child loading dlls
error: Resource temporarily unavailable
make: *** [sharedmods] Error 1

If you wish, you can reproduce the problem yourself with the following:

    $ wget -nd
    $ tar -xzf Python-2.2.1.tgz
    $ cd Python-2.2.1
    $ configure
    $ make

The following (simpler) test case also fails:

    $ cat 
    import os
    import _socket

    pid = os.fork()

    $ ./python 
    C:\cygwin\tmp\python-2.2.1-1\build\python.exe: *** unable to remap C:\cygwin\bin\cygssl.dll to same address as parent -- 0x1A2F0000
          7 [main] python 2456 sync_with_child: child 2968(0x120) died before initialization with status code 0x1
       2838 [main] python 2456 sync_with_child: *** child state child loading dlls
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "", line 4, in ?
        pid = os.fork()
    OSError: [Errno 11] Resource temporarily unavailable

Please let me know if I can help you in any way.  I truly want you to
succeed with your rebase alternative.
