Re: multiple cygwin1.dll message

you do know cygwin is on the list-of-dodgy-apps? i have found one way
around this -- was cruzon around and found that Webroot spy sweeper
does not interfere with cygwin -- and for $30 it does really well.

Sounds likely as it was file name building that I noticed broken and
adding -x to trace the script showed \r's in the middle of my
filenames as I recall. But I immediately downgraded to the previous
version and it started working again.

Is this a known change between the current and the previous cygwin

But when I run my script with a lot of data to process, or repeatedly
run shorter ones, I soon run out of resources and fork fails, and it
kills Zone Alarm, which does start up again, but cygwin remains wounded
until I reboot. It seems like something is allocating resources or
processes and not releasing them, and when I hit some magic maximum
it all falls apart.

Attached is the output I see when the script goes bad. Any suggestions
on this one?

Thanks, John
