Re: 1.7.10 cygrunsrv.exe fails with "fork: 11, Resource temporarily unavailable"

I want to make sure my solution ends up in the archives for the benefit of other people.

Thank you, that was helpful. In the end what seems to have fixed it was to run an ash.exe shell (launched directly from the Start -> Run 
dialog), run 'cd /bin;PATH=. rebaseall' in that, then re-launch the Cygwin terminal, run the following commands:

$ peflags --cygwin-heap=1024 /usr/bin/run.exe
$ peflags --cygwin-heap=1024 /usr/bin/cygrunsrv.exe

I do not know if all those steps were necessary, but the programs seem to work correctly now.
