RE: Any fix to cygheap_fixup_in_child failure after rebaseall?

I did use rebaseall -T /usr/local/bin

But I've always been a bit hazy as to what the proper format for
rebaseall was....

How did you rebase mplayer?  If you didn't use 'rebaseall' with the 
'-T' flag to point to all the other Cygwin apps/DLLs that aren't 
distributed with Cygwin currently, then you won't see any improvement.
