Re: Cygwin 1.5.19-4 issues

My apologies for the second call, it seemed my request was ignored
and it was not clear why.

I just want to add that I am surprised you have not
been able to reproduce the problem with qt designer.
I have tried cygwin update and clean install on three different
computers runnning xp sp2 (one being a virtual pc - vmware)
and all three installations displayed this problem. Downgrading
to 1.5.18-1 removed the problem on all three.

Anyway, I will heed your suggestions, and thank you for your time.

Sorry, I can't reproduce the crash of which you speak.  I didn't attempt
to compile the source.

You might not care about matplotlib, but the "gcc:
fork: Resource temporarily unavailable" which I get during compilation,
indicates some other trouble.

I believe you have gotten a pointer on this issue already so I won't comment

Ah, now there's the $1,000,000 question.  Obviously, if there was a known
cause of this, there would already be a patch.  So your efforts in tracking
this down would be beneficial.  You may want to start with a recent snapshot
to see if it would help or hurt.  Any recent snapshot is going to give you
good insight into the capabilities of 1.5.20, which is pending release.

Perhaps it would be best to read and follow the problem reporting guidelines
outlined here:
