Sorry for the poor report, probably I could provide more details if

starting with `emacs -Q'.



Attached the output from cygcheck. For some reason it dumped core too:

$ cygcheck -s -v -r>  /tmp/cygcheck.out
Segmentation fault

I wonder if this is the same problem as the one that was reported in

and fixed in the 2012-05-14 snapshot.

Other programs seem to work normally (though I haven't tried many).

The steps to reproduce the problem with emacs-24 are:

1. start emacs: emacs -nw -Q
2. C-x C-f C-g
Here emacs either dumps core or hangs.

I can reproduce this on XP but not on Windows 7. And I see from your (partial) cygcheck output that you're running Vista. I'll try to debug this on my XP system.
