It's part of the snapshots since 25-May. If you think that the ntsec
feature is the reason for the core dumps you have two choices:

- Send me an strace
- set CYGWIN=nontsec

I'm using ntsec since I begun to develop it (since mid of January) and
I'm using vim, too. I don't have any core dump with it. This should not
imply, that I believe, ntsec is error free! Moreover, ntsec is a widely
discussable feature and it will not be useful for everyone.
