i don't really understand why my system needed it.  it's a clean install
plus openssh, rsync, psmisc, netcat, vim.

The install isn't a key component of the issue. It has more to do with what's running and if Cygwin DLLs will collide when loaded, given the existing memory layout.

Yeah, it's complicated. ;-)

you might want to consider getting a blurb about "rebaseall" into the event
log entry for fork failures.

i am running under Windows 7... could that contribute?

Not necessarily, though by my unscientific count, it seems more of a problem on x64. But that may be a skewed observation of the actual facts.
