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 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.
