Unfortunately, it does not run. First, there is a minor issue: when I've
started emacs after downloading, I've got

/usr/bin/emacs-nox.exe: error while loading shared libraries: cygdbus-1-3.dll: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I guess, a dependency to libdbus1_3 must be added when Emacs is
compiled with D-Bus support.

After installing that library, Emacs did start. How ever, it blocks
when loading dbus.el.

I've tried to debug it with gdb, but it told me

(gdb) file /usr/bin/emacs-nox.exe
Reading symbols from /usr/bin/emacs-nox.exe...(no debugging symbols found)...done.

I'm sorry; I'm not familiar with cygwin, so I don't know how to continue.
