Yes, I have as well.  It seems to happen with all C++ Qt or KDE apps; 
PyQt apps (e.g. convertall, also available through Cygwin Ports) don't 
generate this message.  Despite the message, the programs seem to run 
correctly anyways.

Now that I know that this is not just a local issue, I'll try 
researching this further; this would appear to have something to do with 
the Qt threading code.

Thanks for your report.
