Unable to start bash fatal error

Hi all,

My cygwin installation was running quite happily, until I updated this morning (march 8). After installation bash (now version 4.1.10-4) won't launch anymore.
When starting it from a DOS box, it gives this output:

      0 [main] bash 8168 D:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe: *** fatal error - add_item ("\??\D:\cygwin", "/", ...) failed, errno 1

My cygwin installation resides in D:\cygwin, but the add_item parameter "\??\D:\cygwin" looks a bit suspicious.
I've located its value in the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Cygwin\Installations\.
If I manually change the value to "D:\cygwin" and then start bash, it still gives the same problem. Better yet, the \??\ has returned into the registry key. Is this intended behavior?

Similar output is also generated when running cygcheck, so I couldn't attach its output.

Does anybody have a similar problem or maybe an idea on how to fix this?
