This has been reported before and I was able to duplicate it in a VM.
I thought I'd fixed it when I released 1.7-30 but obviously it's still

The good news is that I can reproduce the problem 100% of the time in
gdb so I finally was able to track down the root cause.

I'm generating a snapshot with a fix now.  The fix is in cygwin1.dll,
not cygcheck.exe, so you'll need to download and install that.

If you can verify that the snapshot works, I'll generate a new 1.7
