I don't know what's with your machine, but these values are *very* bad.
The Cygwin DLL is supposed to be loaded into the same virtual address
0x61000000 in every process.  The above address...  I don't know what
I should say.  Did you run perlrebase?  Is your perl executable
dislocated?  I know that perlrebase did that accidentally at one point.
What does `objdump -h /bin/perl' print?  Additionally, do you observe 
collisions when running `rebase -si'?

That shouldn't matter.  It *could* matter in case of the default
entries in the mount table, but in fact those should be fixed after
the first Cygwin executable is running and then not change anymore
