I've done the "Try" line above and there are no reported errors. Bear in
mind that the package list given by "cygcheck -s -r -v" is complete and
doesn't cause a segfault.

I am afraid it still segfaults and the last report output was for
texinfo. No additional information was output.

Have done - reinstalled and cleared the Incomplete reports.

I suspect it must have been once upon a time but anyway the reinstalls
have resulted in its disappearance. Hasn't cleared the segfault though
