Thanks for the detailed debugging information. I will look into this.
I should point out that I use zsh *all* of the time on Cygwin. It is essentially
my "test" system for new versions of the DLL since it uses so much of the UNIX
api -- especially with regard to signals.
I don't have any problems running zsh but there were some signal fixes that went
in after 1.1.0 was released. Could you try a recent Cygwin snapshot and let
firstname.lastname@example.org know if it works any better?
