I've been recently plagued with a "resource temporarily unavailable"
(a.k.a. EBUSY) fork problem (on WinXP), with 1.5.18, snapshots, and
self-build DLLs.  I don't know if it's related to what you're seeing.
The problem doesn't seem to be reproducible under gdb, but can be
reproduced under strace for long-running scripts.  I hereby repeat my plea
to Cygwin developers for debugging suggestions -- what information would
be useful to put into the strace to help (me) track down the source of
this problem?

If there's any real truth it's that the entire multidimensional infinity
of the Universe is almost certainly being run by a bunch of maniacs. /DA
