I made the following experiment: I installed cygwin 1.5.18-1 and now
 ./temacs.exe --batch --load loadup bootstrap
creates emacs.exe

BTW, I have not rebuild temacs because most of build tools are
not compatible with the old cygwin dll, e.g., rm produces an error

 The procedure entry point getline could not be located in the [DLL]

I reverted back to 19-4 and now temacs again fails with apparent
recursion (malloc() from cygwin1.dll calls malloc from temacs).

The problem is that I have no idea what to tell them: temacs fails
with DLL 1.5.19-4 but dumps emacs with DLL 1.5.18-1 is not a
reasonable bug report.

Let me put the question differently: what was changed between 18-1 and
19-4 in the DLL (note that .h files are irrelevant since I used temacs
built with 19-4).
