New problem with 20110803

There's another problem with the 20110803 snapshot.  When a fork fails
with the following message:

       0 [main] cmake 5088 child_info_fork::abort: address space
needed by 'cyggcc_s-1.dll' (E20A0000) is already occupied

ALL user processes except for mintty, even those in other terminal
windows, are "Stopped" (prefixed with "S" in ps) and do not respond to
Ctrl-C or the like.  A new terminal can be started, but then all
fork() calls fail with:

      0 [main] sh 4680 fork: child -1 - forked process died
unexpectedly, retry 10, exit code -1073741819, errno 11

Currently-running services do not seem to be affected.
