You're going to have to provide an actual error message, Suhaib.
The string proc_info_signal does not show up anywhere in cygwin.

There is a proc_info structure and a sig_send function.  The sig_send
function could emit errors in some situations.  This is probably what
you're seeing and is probably what we need to track down.
