Yes.  If you have mounted your /bin directory using the '-X' option,
however, strace won't work correctly since it is not a cygwin binary.
You can either mount the strace.exe program using '-x' or copy it
to another directory.

It sounds like you need to debug this problem using gdb.  That means
building a debugging version of cygwin1.dll.
