-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Firstofall, I'm completely ignorant of anything windoze
but currently put into a completely *IX ignorant
so cygwin is my only hope.
I use cygwin (version of about April 2002, BTW how can I
get the Cygwin version number ?)
and tcsh v6.11.00 (cygwin version) for about half a year
but about a month ago something changed:
When closing an xterm I get the following windoze error
"The instruction at "0x6106f3be" referenced memory at
The memory could not be "read"."
This in itself is not alarming to me since after pushing
"OK" the message
and the xterm vanish. But since the same time my xemacs
went slooooooow whenever it accesses the disk, esp.
annoying when autosaving.
Also, any reactions from the Cygwin Window became slow at
I reduced the path to the necessary minimum(no network
disks, no redundancies),
assuming that some network disks are regularly accessed,
but to no avail;although
the problem gets better when cutting the network
connection, it does not disappear
I cannot say if something changed in the windoze
environment, which AFAIK may happen without my knowledge,
and I have no more clues on where my problem may originate.
Maybe some of you have experienced a similar behaviour and
may offer some more clues.
BTW. I'm not in a position to upgrade cygwin or any
packages myself, lacking access to important internet
