Heh, I certainly can't reproduce this.  Is it really *any* directory?
What is the exact message that "cygcheck -cv cygwin" produces?  What does
"zcat /etc/setup/cygwin.lst.gz | grep kill" show?  Finally, is there a
/bin/kill.exe on your system?

Does "strace" crash for you?  What does "strace cygcheck -s" produce?

Incidentally, I noticed something strange about the "cygrunsrv" invocation
in the "cygcheck -s" output -- will report the bug separately.
