fork problem in latest snapshot on Win98

I'm getting a repeatable fork memory allocation error with snapshot
20051116 on Win98, when trying to build CVS head of libtool; this was
not a problem with 20051020.

$ make
cd . && /bin/sh ./config.status libtool

tdl_libltdl_la-preopen.Tpo"; exit 1; fi

What makes it particularly weird is that ./libtool reports "fork: No error".
I'm guessing it is something in the snapshot, since the popup box
refers to a cygwin address, but don't know what to look for in the
strace for a more accurate diagnosis.  The attached .bz2 contains
both the strace and my cygcheck output.
