Sorry, I can't make a lot out of this error report.  Please try to nail
down the problem somewhat further, for instance, by providing a minimal
testcase which allows to reproduce the problem with a minimum of
involved code.

Since this revolves around malloc, it might be worth to note that two
changes to malloc have been made in Cygwin between 1.5.18 and 1.5.19.
First, we switched from Doug Lea's malloc implementation version 2.8.0
to 2.8.3, second, due to a reworked mmap implementation, which uses
simple VirtualAlloc for private anonymous maps, we lowered the
DEFAULT_MMAP_THRESHOLD from 16 Megs to the usual default of 256K.
