You have not provided enough information for anyone to help you.  Please
read and follow the instructions at
> Problem reports:

Moreover, if I understand your question correctly, it does not follow at
all from the guess I offered and the question I asked above: when you run
your code (the program that you provided a snippet of, not the cygserver
daemon), does the environment variable CYGWIN contain the word "server" in
it, as mentioned in /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/cygserver.README?  FYI,
following the instructions above would have provided us with the output of
a tool (cygcheck) that would have answered my question.
