I tried looking up the address of by using Corinna's suggestion (rebase -si), and it wasn't included in that list at all (not even when using cygwin's ruby 1.8.7 package), so it did never rebase it. After rebasing explicitly, I had other shared objects with similar problems. Your script did the magic, thanks!

the cygwin's ruby package "" should be included in the rebaseall
list by default.
Rebaseall looks for all "*.so" and "*.dll" files reported on
"/etc/setup/*.lst.gz", so every
regulary installed dll's is included in the rebase round.
Any dll's from program manually installed must be included with the
"-T FileList" rebaseall option

On my system:

$ rebase -si |grep
/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/i386-cygwin/       base 0x5a1d0000 size 0x00009000

$ rebase --version
rebase version 4.0.1 (imagehelper version 0.10)

Tishler, et al.

If it is not working, you have a problem with the rebase package or
with your installation.
