I can't reproduce this problem with 1.5.25-11.  It would have been an
expected problem with 1.5.25-7 (though not on the x64 version), but when
you install -11, this is supposed to work fine on 2008 Server.  And it
does for me, I just tried a fresh base install on a vanilla 2008
Standard Server Edition.

There must be something else broken on your machine.  Are you sure that
you installed 1.5.25-11 and not another version accidentally?  Or, maybe
the -7 version was installed already and a Cygwin process was still
running or something like that?
