I have uninstalled Vista and backed to XP, the following script is used 
to launch cpan for the same error in Vista. I don't know whether it can 
solve git svn's problem. And it's written several months ago for cygwin 
1.7.0-35(or earlier), maybe not work for the most latest version.

1) bash session:
     find /etc/setup -name '*.lst.gz' | xargs gzip -d -c | grep -E 
"\.(dll|so)\$" | sed -e '/cygwin1.dll$/d' -e 's/^/\//' >/tmp/libs
     grep    lib/perl5 /tmp/libs >/tmp/libs-perl5
     grep -v lib/perl5 /tmp/libs >/tmp/libs-nonperl
     find /usr/lib/perl5 -iname *.dll >>/tmp/libs-perl5
     sort -u /tmp/libs-perl5 >/tmp/libs-p

2) quit bash and start a new cmd.exe session:
     rebase -vdb 0x70000000 -o 0x100000 -T /tmp/libs-nonperl
     rebase -vdb 0x10000000 -o 0x20000 -T /tmp/libs-p
