I'm starting to see this error quite a bit in the terminal window I started

Have you tried rebaseall

isn't the typical error message you see from rebase problems, but it
can't hurt to try.  If that doesn't help, maybe you could test the
build I mentioned at


Yes, the first thing I tried was rebaseall, but that also gives (in my
history) the message about not being able to fork a new process.

Are you saying you get a fork error when you run rebaseall? If so, I think you need to fix that before you can hope to avoid fork errors in emacs. Have you looked for BLODA? Other than that, I don't know what to suggest (except that you should send cygcheck output when you write again).
