I'm surprised that this is meant to work at all. However, did you
check to omit the O_CREAT? The combination of O_CREATE and O_TRUNC
will result in a CreateFile() call using the CREATE_ALWAYS flag while
the O_TRUNC alone just uses the TRUNCATE_EXISTING flag. I could
easiliy imagine that Win32 doesn't like to remove and recreate a
file which is mmapped currently...
In theory a change to Cygwin should be possible then to avoid calling
CreateFile(CREATE_ALWAYS) if the file exists.
