\cygwin\bin\sh.exe: *** fatal error - couldn't allocate heap, Win32 error 487

Is anybody working on this?  Sadly, I do not have time.  It is less
frequent than it was, but it is still frequent enough to be a
significant issue.  I can't use find with -exec, something I do all the
time, because it will invariably fail before completion, even on small
filesets.

It isn't just me, as I've had another person ask me about it in private
email (also on a Thinkpad, an R52 in his case, btw).

Tried the 20060529 snapshot.  It seems less frequent, but still happens.

Thank you.  I'd recommend trying a snapshot and reporting back your
results.
