Quirky Emacs behavior -- any ideas?

Hi Folks,

Does this jog anyone's memory?

New XP SP1 install, new cygwin install (full)

Quirk #1:

When I launch Emacs, I get this scratch buffer popping
up which reads:

** ad-Orig-documentation called with 5 arguments, but
accepts only 1-2

Then, I notice that apropos is broken.  For example,
if I type "M-X apropos tab"

I get

Debugger entered--Lisp error:
(wrong-number-of-arguments #<subr
documentation> 5)

  ad-Orig-documentation(Buffer-menu-visit-tags-table t
nil nil nil)
  documentation(Buffer-menu-visit-tags-table t)
  apropos-command("tab" nil)
* call-interactively(apropos-command)

Quirk #2:

When I exit Emacs (and return to a bash shell) I see
this error

lstat(./kpsewhich) failed ...
./kpsewhich: No such file or directory

I've never seen either of these behaviors before and
can find little in the forum or google.

Does anyone have an idea what may be going on?
