Re: cygwin1.dll replica's?

This suggests you have a *really* old version of cygwin1.dll loaded in memory. If true, sounds to me like you're the victim of a 3PP <>.

So being a good guy, I google for this problem, figure out its an
issue of cygwin1.dll replica's and set out to find one. None of my
windows search or google desktop search showed me two replicas.
Frustrated, I uninstalled cygwin by removing it directory and deleting
the registry entries. I then fresh installed it and was still running
into the same issue.

Not surprising since the problem isn't coming from your Cygwin installation.

So this time a do a find -name thing at the top of the cygwin tree.
Here it returned me two places where cygwin1.dll was... /bin and
/usr/bin. However, it seems /usr/bin is just a hard (symbolic?) link
to /bin and I cant actually delete anything in there since it is
pointing to the only copy of cygwin in /bin.

Why are you looking inside your Cygwin installation for the rogue cygwin1.dll? Do you think that the Cygwin installer is going to install two incompatible versions on your system? Look for cygwin1.dll in *other* locations on your disk. When you find one outside of the Cygwin install tree, remove it.

If you're still having problems after doing the above, then
