cygwin initialization, was cygrunsrv fails to start

I'm looking for ideas on how to further debug this problem. I'll take any
thoughts or suggestions.
I would like to understand the sequence of events when the cygwin1.dll is
This happens in response to the first .exe image that references it, right?
Is there any "automatic" initialization of the cygwin1.dll, or does it wait
until the first posix call from the .exe image?
I am trying to figure out why cygrunsrv works sometimes and fails sometimes
on one of my win2kpro-sp2 boxes. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does
I have placed
at the beginning of the code, after main (and a couple of simple assignment
statements. (The code is attached.)
The result is that sometimes when I boot up it works and I get the expected
file output. And sometimes when I boot up, it does not work and I get no
output file. When it fails, I also get the timeout errors in the system log.
There are no other cases.
Other service wrappers (srvany and invoker) work fine and there is no other
strangeness on this machine.
Is there a way to do non-cygin I/O at the beginning that would happen before
the cygwin1.dll ever got "touched" or initialized in any way?
Is there any thing else I should look at?
