Unable to initialize fd 0 for /dev/tty1

Hi all,

The last couple days I've gotten some really strange errors. Sometimes I'll alt-tab to an xterm window and start typing, only to have it disappear at the first keystroke. Sometimes `emacs -nw' will get hit instead, leaving both emacs and the xterm pretty much unusable. I haven't been able to get a stack trace from any of those, but tkdiff was kind enough to print this error instead of just going away:
diff failed:
4 [main] diff 4780 C:\cygwin\bin\diff.exe: *** fatal error - couldn't initialize fd 0 for /dev/tty1
Stack trace:

End of stack trace

Has anyone seen this before? It happens just often enough to be really annoying... I tried rebooting but to no avail.
