The line above has nothing to do with the crash that you are experiencing.

Installing random source/binary packages is unlikely to help.
You have to provide more information on your environment and the crash
Reading http://cygwin.com/bugs.html may help you to provide this
information. The ouput of 'strace' on bash would help also - i.e.
instead of starting bash from the shortcut, run a command prompt window
and type 'strace -o bash.strace c:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe' (without the
quotes) - obviously you have to replace c:\cygwin with the actual
location where you have installed Cygwin.
