This is on W2K RC2 Server:

Yes I see this, too. After stripping the try to start any cygwin
command opens a MessageBox:

  "The application or DLL D:\usr\bin\cygwin1.dll is not a valid
   windows image. Please check this against your installation

The size of the striped DLL is different between the current and
the older version of strip:

with strip 2.9-19990830:	544768 bytes (this works)
with strip 2.9-19990911:	520192 bytes (this not)

Stripping any other executables seems to work as expected.
