This is being triggered by the defintion of __mbuf in the inline 
definition of sigthread::init() (sigproc.h). At this point I don't
know where the problem is, but it has to do with the fact that
__mbuf is `static __attribute__((section(".data_cygwin_nocopy")))'.

GCC snapshots produce the same behaviour. It's probably a bug in GCC
-- once you start using section attributes and all that, things pretty
hairy in C++.  We need to find a reasonably workaround.
