I can reproduce this. I'll try again to fix it.
I've discovered something strange by running emacs under gdb. If I
start emacs-24 in a terminal (but not under X) and start a shell as you
did, then every press of C-g creates a new thread, and these are never
destroyed. I'm pretty sure the threads are created by Cygwin, not by emacs.
cgf and/or Corinna, could you take a look? I wonder if this is related
to the pthread problems that have been reported in a different
(mailing-list) thread. Here are simplified steps for reproducing:
1. Install emacs-24.0.96-2.
2. In a Cygwin terminal with DISPLAY not set, run 'emacs -Q'.
3. Type <Alt-x>shell<return>
4. Repeatedly press C-g until emacs crashes.
