rebaseall invocation error

I am running rebaseall manually to enable X11:  I found a post
suggesting to rebase to 0x77000000

I am following instructions on

I restarted Windows 7 (64bit) in safe mode (no networking) and opened
a command prompt where I executed:

cd \cygwin\bin
rebaseall -v

I got the following error:

rebaseall: only ash or dash processes are allowed during rebasing
    Exit all Cygwin processes and stop all Cygwin services.
    Execute ash (or dash) from Start/Run... or a cmd or command window.
    Execute '/bin/rebaseall' from ash (or dash).

I get the same error from a regular Windows session (with sshd
stopped, and no other cygwin processes running - as far as I can see).

Are there some other Cygwing processes running?  How can I check for
that.  Or is something else amiss?
