This is almost certainly because you updated cygwin without first
terminating ALL cygwin processes.  This includes any services you
have started (I suspect you have cygserver running, but your version
of cygcheck is too old to confirm this).  You will have been warned 
that in-use files were replaced, and that you would need to reboot.
That warning is there for a reason ;-)
