I noticed the same. But I'm not sure when it start happening.
I recently upgraded to cygwin-1.5.11, the latest xorg- stuff
and also to zlib-1.2.1/bzip2-1.0.2. Afterwards I had problems
with apache which could be solved as usually with a rebaseall
including my self compiled dll's.
I only noticed the problem after this procedure. So I'm not sure
what's the culprit.
In my case the cygheap_fixup_in_child error manifests only in a
couple of gnome1 applications which I compiled by myself. It looks as
so all apps which are dependent on /opt/gnome1/bin/cygart_lgpl-2.dll
are infected. All my other gnome1 apps works just fine. For example:
08:15 AM > cygcheck /opt/gnome1/bin/gnubg.exe
I'm not seeing the problem so far with officially released apps.
For example gpg --version works fine here.
So I think I'm on my own here.
