After having no luck with my local machine having XP and some patches 
installed locally I switched to our VmWare server and grabbed a copy of the 
pure XP master without any patches. Then I installed current CygWin from 
scratch and what a wonder - it works now.

So now I am not sure whether my CygWin setup is broken (less probabilistic) or 
whether my Win XP setup is broken (more probabilistic).
