1.7.5: cygwin programs throw STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION exceptions

Recently, when trying to run various programs (e.g., xterm, emacs,
subversion), I often get a message of the following type:
4 [main] xterm 4640 exception::handle: Exception: STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION
496 [main] xterm 4640 open_stackdumpfile: Dumping stack trace to

The context of the file xterm.exe.stackdump is:
Exception: STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION at eip=610202F7
eax=00CE00F8 ebx=61229E44 ecx=7530783F edx=002D20F0 esi=00000000 edi=0022FA14
ebp=61020A10 esp=0022C7E4 program=C:\cygwin\bin\xterm.exe, pid 4640, thread main
cs=001B ds=0023 es=0023 fs=003B gs=0000 ss=0023
Stack trace:
Frame     Function  Args
End of stack trace

In attempt to pin down the problem, I reinstalled cygwin from scratch,
using setup.exe with noting but the default setting + xinit. When
trying to open an xterm window (from an existing one) I often get the
aforementioned message. (In fact, many times I get multiple copies of
these two lines.)

I think that this problem has nothing to do with the problem reported
to be solved in
This is because:
(1) the tsaware flag is set for xterm; and
(2) my windows 7 is in "Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs and
services only" mode.

Any suggestions?
