That's not the fatal error message that I was talking about.

Does the latest snapshot work any better?

Corinna and I noticed some strangeness with cygserver earlier this year
when it was compiled with gcc 3.3.2.  She reminded me of this problem
earlier today.  I had previously reverted my main system to gcc 3.3.1 a
but neglected to revert one of the other systems that I use for building
snapshots via distcc.  So, it was pure chance as to whether cygserver
was compiled with gcc 3.3.2 or gcc 3.3.1.

Now all three of the systems that I use to build snapshots should be in
sync, so I'm hoping your cygserver problem is now gone.
