Dear Cygwin Developers:
I have downloaded and installed version 1.5.3-1 on two different
Windows XP SP1 machines. All was working correctly. However, after
installing the patch from Microsoft to plug the hole(s) that created
RPC problems, I now cannot launch a Bash shell.
On clicking the Cygwin icon, a shell appears for about one second and
then is dismissed. Sometimes a cmd.exe process is left running and
sometimes it is not.

Has anyone else noticed this problem after installing the RPC patch
