We are experiencing an increasing frequency of fork failures in moving our 32 bit application to Windows 10.  Rebaseall is only a temporary fix.  Preliminary unit testing using this "https://github.com/s-u/multicore/blob/master/src/forknt.c" code have been successful.  Would it be fruitful to replace the Cygwin fork with this implementation?  I do not want to waste my time repeating another's work or pursuing a known dead end.
