I finally got cygwin installed.  It seems that the download site I used 
was not up to a recent build or something.  However, now that I have it 
running I'm seeing errors like this:

$       3 [main] rxvt 1664 D:\cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe: *** fatal error - 
unable to remap D:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\bin\cygX11-6.dll to same address as 
parent(0xCB0000) != 0x19570000

and this:

$ xterm
     191 [main] xterm 3256 child_copy: linked dll data write copy 
failed, 0x2AB000..0x2AB440, done 0, windows pid 2273236, Win32 error 487
xterm: Error 29, errno 11: Resource temporarily unavailable
Reason: spawn: fork() failed

And the last item is that XWin.exe won't exit.  It goes to 100% cpu and 
I have to use taskmanager to kill it.

I'm running the latest cygwin1.dll from snapshots.  Windows Vista 
Ultimate Edition X86.
