You can't have upgraded from anything more than Cygwin 1.3.22
if you're getting this complaint when you run.  64 bit file 
operations were introduced for 1.5.1.  You apparently have an
old DLL hanging around somewhere.  Find it.  Delete it.  If 
you cannot find it, you may just need to reboot (because
you didn't after setup asked you to).  If that's not it, 
throw out your computer and buy a new one.  It's apparently
broken (i.e. there's no other reason for this kind of problem).
