Meamory Leak while compiling

While compiling Mozilla with cygwin (a very long build) I have really 
noticed a problem that I have seen a couple times before.  At some point 
in a build I get a fork: access denied message or something to that 
effect and a couple other similar errors.  I reboot the computer and 
it's fine.  If I try to continue using the computer I'll sooner or later 
get an insuficient resources message, winamp if it's running might 
crash, or the computer will outright crash..  So it has to be a leak of 
some kind.  Non paged memory goes up while compiling but it does that 
anyway with other native programs that make heavy use of files but they 
don't crash the computer.  I have seached and found messages that talk 
about leaks but I'm not positive it's relevent to my situation.  I have 
tried the current and previous release builds of the cygwin dll but both 
exibit the same problem.  I'm about to try to pull the latest revision 
from cvs to see if that addresses it.
