Cygwin Package Information
Package              Version        Status
emacs                21.2-13        OK

The above version has been available for quite some time and performs
many editing functions without any run-time errors or crashes.

You could try installing the currently-supported (and pre-built) version
to see whether it would meet your editing needs until the next version
of Emacs is announced as supported in the cygwin distribution.

If you require some editing capability that only Emacs 22 provides,
then you'll likely need to provide:

   - A (sufficiently) detailed description of the steps that you
     took to build Emacs from the source code

   - A detailed description of the run-time/editing steps that 
     you performed that resulted in the problem that you are
