I tried these steps, but the rm -f command still fails with the original
cygwin1.dll in place.

I downloaded the x86/cygwin-inst-20140425.tar.xz file. I assume all

certainly looked like it installed the files.
No. Just download the DLL and only install the DLL in place of the old
DLL. Installing the tar inst file under Cygwin doesn't effectively
replace the Cygwin DLL. You should exit all(!) Cygwin processes, mopve
the release DLL out of the way, and move the new DLL in place.
Good shooting, Corinna. The problem has gone away with the new DLL.
Good to know. Can you please try something else? I'm wondering if
that's not a problem analogue of the one described in
The "fix" from that KB applied to your case:
- Revert to the release Cygwin DLL.
- Delete the .blf files and the .regtrans-ms files from your
- Try the failing rm -f scenario again.
Does that fix the problem, too? If not, I'm back to blaming Perforce.
