Larry or others - what's the "right way" to report this as a bug?  I think
working on newer 64-bit OSes is pretty important...  And it should be
trivial to reproduce since the Amazon instances are publicly available;
nobody has to actually buy them expensive licenses...


It isn't all "newer 64-bit OSes" because I run Cygwin 1.7 on my Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS with no problems at all.

Yup, good point. I should have pointed this out, since it's apparently not clear to Ernest and perhaps others. I, in fact, run Cygwin from Window 7 Ultamite x64 on my laptop.

Whatever the issue is, it would be nice to have a recipe to reproduce
it for Windows 2008 or 7 x64 without the Amazon tie-in.  That would at
least help localize the problem. :-)

Q: Are you sure?
