I've fixed the newlib breakage and built a new snapshot.  I don't detect
any excessive CPU consumption now.

This snapshot also has fixes for the overlapping buffer problem in
malloc/mmap.  Thanks to Corinna for tracking this down.  It obviously
wasn't an easy task.  For the technically minded, this turns out to be a
longstanding problem in cygwin's sbrk implementation.

Please try it.  1.5.3 is nigh.
