procps 3.2.8 on 64-bit Cygwin with Windows 8.1 displays "Unknown HZ value!" message

Hello, I just reinstalled the latest 64-bit Cygwin yesterday on my Windows 8.1 machine. I installed the new procps 3.2.8-1 package as well (thanks for making it available for 64-bit). Now when I run any procps commands, I get this message:
"Unknown HZ value! (632) Assume 1024."

$ uname -srv
CYGWIN_NT-6.2 1.7.25(0.270/5/3) 2013-08-31 20:37

$ procps -V
Unknown HZ value! (632) Assume 1024.
procps version 3.2.8

How can I fix the 'Unknown HZ value' problem? The last time I saw this error in the Cygwin forums was from 2004, with the resolution that the user wait for a new procps version, so I assume this is now a different issue. On a Linux machine it seems to indicate hacking, but I'm wondering if there is another cause for this when using 64-bit Cygwin on Windows 8.1. Just FYI, I did not attach cygcheck output because of a known issue with seg violations when using cygcheck on Windows 8.1. Thanks.
