Hi all,

I have found a problem with ImageMagick and a temporary fix.

After a recent update to my Cygwin installation, the convert program
stopped working. It simply exited silently, though I discover with gdb

was because of a missing dll, specifically

So, as I said, I don't know whether this could be fixed by you or the x11 maintainers. Any thoughts?

Just one: cygwin/x issues should really go to the cygwin-xfree mailing list.

I for one am very glad it has been mentioned on the Cygwin list, as I had noticed similar behaviour but not bothered to establish the cause. And I would never have thought it was an X-related problem as convert is a non-graphical program.

I think it affects GraphicsMagick also.
