Unknown HZ value! (632) Assume 1024.

Does the warning go away if you run

     $ HZ=1024 procps -V


By the way, I tried it here and didn't get the complaint.

It seems someone has set the HZ environment variable to 632 for some
reason.  You can verify this with "echo $HZ".

Thanks. I had already tried setting the environmental variable HZ to 1024 prior to receiving your latest message, so couldn't check if it already had a value. I also use a third party software that had been compiled with an earlier Cygwin version. I was not sure if that was affecting my stand-alone installation somehow so the developer of that software just rebuilt it with the latest Cygwin and I installed that version. I then restarted my computer and now "echo $HZ" returns nothing and the error no longer appears, so I think it is resolved, not sure if it was just the restart or also updating the other software. Sorry I did not try that earlier.

For what it's worth, the "632" number in the message had been incrementing occasionally and was up to 641 by the time I received your email, so I'm unsure what was setting it, but it is no longer an issue. Thanks for your assistance.
