So why does it fail? Seems like a bug to me!


As does not fail on my computer, I suspect is a race between your AV and
cygwin and sometimes cygwin wins.


Good for you. I don't have AV SW as I mentioned. And even so, that still makes it a bug.

Your system timing performance as so poor that something
is likely interfering.
Don't assume that is a cygwin bug.

Anyhow, a suspicion is speculative. I thought this mailing list was meant to report issues, and I think this is an issue.

Yes, this is the right place.

How can I further diagnose this? Is there a known way to further determine what's causing this?

start with
> Problem reports:

"Run cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck.out and include that file as an attachment in your report. Please do not compress or otherwise encode the output. Just attach it as a straight text file so that it can be easily viewed. "

so we can look at your system configuration.
