To make all correct, i tell all again. I installed the snapshot of the .dll 
(with Corinnas changes?), parrallel i installed bind-8.1.2. I got problems, at 
first, i reinstalled cygwin-1.1.6 to see if if has to do with this error, 
then i installed again the newest snapshot.dll and uninstalled bind, and now it 

So, i could tell you all, bind-8.1.2 of cygwin-rpm-project at sourceforge is 
corrupted (IMHO).

Good to know, i thought i is enough to install cygwin1.dll.
