A bug in Cygwin.  Actually, 2 bugs, one generic bug and one in 64 bit
Cygwin only.

I applied patches to the git repo and I just uploaded new developer
snapshots to which contain the fixes.

I'm also creating new test releases 2.2.0-0.4 and upload and announce
them later today.

Please give any of them a try, preferredly today, so I may be able
to create the offical Cygwin 2.2.0 release today as well.
