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
