I don't know if it fixes it or not but I can tell you that I started
using cygserver perhaps a couple months ago and after changing that
variable, I've never seen the fork problem again.

However, I'm not completely sure but I think that the chain of events
was like this:

1- no fork problems

2- added cygserver for different reasons

3- got fork problems

4- edited cygserver.conf

5- no fork problems

Right now, although I understand that fork problem, I do not
understand its cause or why the cygserver.conf change fixed it.  I
think the reason I edited that file was because I got the impression
that using cygserver is what caused my fork problems.  It seems though
that people are getting the fork problems even when not using
cygserver.  I concluded that I needed to research cygserver a lot more
to understand what's going.  One day ...

One thing is certain, though.  I'm very glad I don't see the fork
problems anymore.
