cygwin bash crashes on Win Serv 2008
Tue Oct 28 15:05:00 GMT 2008
FYI, Microsoft Professional Support EMEA didn't accept this problem as a
support case. So, if nobody at Microsoft thinks this is a potential OS
problem and requires analyzing from the OS side, it will stay unfixed.

Apparently Server 2008 has DEP switched on by default. I missed this
when testing but the MS support engineer told me. Of course that
doesn't change the fact that bash/gdb/grep work fine with DEP switched
on as long as TS isn't installed...
