I'm using the gvim from the cygnome project. But is is still vim 6.2 and running
an update with the cygwin installer does always want to install vim 6.3 now which
will overwrite the binary.

The segfault was reported a few times before but afaik no one has tracked it down 
before. If you're willing I could give you some assistance.
