Thanks for your answer. Any suggestions on how I could find out what
is causing this? I found Corinna mentioning the hacking of cygwin.dll
by adding a call to sleep in the error handler in order to allow the
inspection of /proc/$PID/maps in an old thread, but perhaps there is
something more convenient now?
