Re: Fatal error from Cygwin emacs-w32 every day or so

I see these crashes on a regular basis (the few times I've managed to
attach gdb to this Emacs instance I've not got any useful backtraces
except that it was always crashing in a timer triggered function).

I'm waiting for 24.4 myself to see if this resolves itself.  In the
meantime I'm just running Emacs from a Cygwin32 instance, that never
crashes for me.

If I had a reproducer, you'd have it by now.
