Is /bin/sh.exe bash or ash on your system.

Also, could you include the cygcheck output as mentioned at ?

I appreciate that you've taken the steps to debug this but without a way
to duplicate the problem there isn't much that can be done.  I've run
both bash and ash in every way I could think of to duplicate this
problem with no success.  I'm stumped as to how and why a cygthread
could be firing while a process is exiting.

If you can capture this state in gdb and get backtraces of all of the
running threads, that would probably help.
