I'm sorry - I havn't seen your question.

The error is intermittent.
Sometimes I have this error and sometimes not - really not reproduceable.
If it occurs - it's always while compiling another sourcefile.

What is compiled: C-Files.
We use VxWorks GNU-MinGW Crosscompiler by (Wind River Systems).
The make is an old cygwin (1.5.x) make-3.80 and the sh is a cygwin (1.5.x) by
Wind River Systems.
