Another spurious "multiple copies of cygwin1.dll" -- this time in perl

  $ perl
does it. Anything else, naturally, fails in the same way.

I haven't installed any perl extensions; I'm using the plain-vanilla version I d/l'd from the cygwin mirror.

Investigating DLL base addresses, I discovered that Oracle had deposited some DLLs where Cygwin expects
to find cygwin1.dll. So I edited the relevant registry keys and rebooted. No joy.

Running listDLLs again, I now find the lines
  Base        Size      Version	        Path
  0x61650000  0x26000   5.01.2600.0000  C:\WINDOWS\System32\modemui.dll
  0x63000000  0x96000   6.00.2800.1468  C:\WINDOWS\System32\wininet.dll

Is there room for cygwin1.dll between 0x61676001 and 0x62FFFFFF?
It looks like there should be -- cygcheck lists the size as 1114k.

Unhelpfully, listDLLs hangs when cygwin is running, so I can't use this tool to figure out exactly where cygwin1.dll is.

Thanks again for your help,
