Hi Ken,

I observe Emacs crashes in the following scenario:

- emacs -nw
- run cygwin setup utility, click through it until it finishes (it does not matter whether
any packages are installed or not)
- continue with emacs (for example, type "C-x C-f C-g") - it will crash

I don't know if it is related to the problem in this discussion, and
probably it's not a good idea to update Cygwin while running Cygwin programs,
but maybe it will give some hint.

I'm currently on Cygwin 1.7.16, Windows 7 (maybe it started after I
upgraded from Vista recently, but I'm not sure).
