I tried updating to cygwin dll 1.1.2 and now anytime I type a
cygwin command I get:

  ...<command>.exe: *** shared region is corrupted. inited 14
  0 [main] ? 0 lock_pinfo_for_update: rc 0, pinfo_mutex 0xFFFFFFFF, Win32 
error 6

I searched the mailing list and came up with using cygcheck but that
command doesn't work either.

Is there a way to gracefully recover from this or do I just have to
completely reinstall cygwin?

I'm running Windows 2000.
