I recently encountered this message in NetBeans 7.4: " 1 [main] pty 8992 find_fast_cwd: WARNING: Couldn't compute FAST_CWD pointer. Please report this problem to the public mailing list" . Is this perhaps why my code doesn't compile on any machine other than my won?

Well, there's precious little detail to go on here.  But a quick check
of the email archives (or web in general) likely would have unearthed
this reference:


From the date and the reference to Windows 8, I think you could conclude
that this is a Windows 8 issue and that any recent (1.7.25 or later version
of the Cygwin package would resolve this - we're at 1.7.32 ATM). So if
updating the affected systems to the latest Cygwin package doesn't help,
please follow the problem reporting guidelines found at the link below
so folks here will have the necessary boot-strap information to help
diagnose the problem you're seeing.
I can confirm this. I think in my case I started seeing this error right after I upgraded my workstation to Windows 8.1. I installed the latest and greatest Cygwin, and the error stopped happening.
