And... another crash. I didn't run it under gdb this
time and it didn't dump anything either, but I got
interesting new message I didn't see before:

*** fatal error - WFSO failed waiting for timer thread, Win32 error 0

This message comes from the function timer_tracker::cancel in
in the Cygwin sources.  I'm afraid I have no idea what the timer thread
is or why WaitForSingleObject might fail waiting for it.

cgf or Corinna (or anyone else), can you shed any light on what might
cause this?  Could it be BLODA, for instance?

I really don't see how WaitForSingleObject can fail like this but I have
demoted that fatal condition to a warning and added slightly more
debugging output to it.  The next snapshot will have that change.

Thanks. Gustav, can you install the latest snapshot? That might help debug this in case you get that WFSO failure again.
