There is no indication from this bug report that this is in any way
related to the problems fixed by the snapshot and now by the 1.5.9-1
release.  The only fix in the cygwin snapshot was a work around for a
cygwin heap problem which manifested on certain Windows XP or 2000

There is nothing that would address a SEGV.  Judging from Volker's stack
trace, it looks like the problem is in the program itself, rather than
the Cygwin DLL, too.
