I rebuilt GVIM from sources i downloaded using cygwin setup utility.
I used the following sequence of commands

./configure --with-x --with-features=huge ; make ; make install

The problem is that each time i try to launch the resulting executable
on my home XP box i got the following error message

Vim: Caught deadly signal SEGV
Vim: Finished.

This is *systematic*.

Seaching both cygwin and cygwin/X mailing-list with

led me too

But nothing usefull i can use.

At work i successfully rebuilt GVIM directly from CVS on a Win2K box w/o
such a problem.
In both places (Home, Work) i run cygwin setup utility on a daily basis
in order to get the latest release available of all packages.
The only difference being that at Work i periodically rebuild GVIM from
CVS w/ GTK 1.2.10, while at home i use

you'll find attached  *XWin.log*

Any hints will be appreciated.
Thank You in advance
