This probably means that there's an mmap'ed memory region which Cygwin
has in its bookkeeping list, but which doesn't exist in the parent
process anymore.  The problem here is that it's totally unclear how
something like this could have happened.

Does that happen under Cygwin 1.7.32 as well?  Can you create a simple
testcase, preferredly in plain C, which allows to reproduce this?
