There are probably other programs that use the same technique and cause
the same effect, like windows update.

No, the problem was never fixed on ProcExp's end.  Believe me, I use
both Cygwin and ProcExp every day, and this was always broken until
Linbox sponsored cgf to look into it and create a fix, which only
happened last month.

(I think that was the one that actually fixed the problem, but it might
have been http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-cvs/2006-q2/msg00121.html)

The last release of Cygwin was 1.5.19-4 on 2006-01-20, so unless you
have a time machine, a fix made on 2006-05-17 will not be included. 
Besides, using the latest snapshot should always be the first thing you
try when encountering a problem before reporting it to the list.  Nobody
cares about hearing about bugs that have already been fixed.
