FW: LilyPond 2.2.2 with Cygwin: Error messages


We get a lot of emails from lilypond users running Windows 98 regarding
numerous "illegal operations" caused by cygwin programs. The problem
doesn't occur on Win2000 or XP. 

Please let me know if you can help us. Is it a cygwin issue? Is it a
python issue? Is it an issue with lilypond build? I've attached one of
the reports. 

Thank you very much.

Subject: LilyPond 2.2.2 failures on W98SE


This problem was previously reported by Warren Stickney, but there seems
have been no resolution to date.

I've just completed download and test of LilyPond 2.2.2 on Windows 98 SE
(Second Edition).

When the test ( is run, it executes up to running:

command:/usr/bin/liliypond > test.log 2>&1

and then fails twice when executing PYTHON23 with the error message:

This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down.

The details state that there was an invalid page fault in module

The program continues by executing "sh", "liliypond-bin" and then
and again fails with the same symptoms.

Continuing on, the program fails a total of 8 times, but the PDF file is
generated and looks fine.  The test.log doesn't show any failure

Other quick tests of simple input fail exactly the same way.  This is
annoying and may be causing memory leaks too.

I've used cygcheck, and it reports python as 2.3.4-2.

I hesitate sending this report to the Python team, since they will want
know more about the whole process and at this stage I can't tell them

I note that version 2.2.3 has just been released with no mention of
related to this problem.

Please let me know what to do further.
