What's the exact error message (I assume you get a popup box)?
Is there a stacktrace file generated?  Did you try setting
"error_start:c:/cygwin/bin/dumper.exe" in your CYGWIN environment
variable?  Did you try running the program from the command line in a
LocalSystem-owned shell?  Can you provide a simple testcase that
reproduces your problem?
