I tested your program and found out that the crashes were in compiler
generated code (especially in STL code). Upgrading to the latest version
of everything (GCC in particular) solved everything for me without using
any Cygwin snapshots.
I've updated everything too, atm i'm using the "new"
gcc 3.3.1-3, yet it still crashes, plus i don't think
the changes made recently to the snapshots exist in the
However i too do think there is an issue with cygwin's Pthreads
and the stl string class, more so i think there is an issue
with the underlying infrastructure that it uses, ie: the i386
I've found many times when using the cygwin1.dll i've built
the crashes occur in those libraries. however due to the fact
that the release dll does not have debugging on i wasn't able
to investigate where abouts the crashes were residing from within
The fact still remains, debug built dlls work, snapshot and release dlls
don't, why? does anyone know?
