freopen failed, core dumped

I received the following message after using a computer-intensive program (seismic unix):

freopen failed in VNDseekVNDrwslice: seek failed mode = r iopanel = 0 idim = 0 iblock = 400 ipanel = 0
Aborted (core dumped)

What means that message?

I presume that cygwin is complaining about that tool program, but this happens only with one executable called suradon, which requires a lot of resources. I just changed cygwin's heap maximum memory to 2GB with:

regtool -i set /HKLM/Software/Cygwin/heap_chunk_in_mb 1024
regtool -v list /HKLM/Software/Cygwin

but that core dumped error persists. Any idea how to solve this USING cygwin (ie. without moving to linux)?

Thanks for any pointers,


PS. Some details of my installation:
