With some information to go on, someone on the list may be able to 
help you.

Please read the contents of the web page at the link below and 
follow the instructions:

Attach the text from cygcheck -svr, a Simple Test Case minimal source 
program, which when run demonstrates the problem, and the output from 
that test run, and/or the log from a gdb session, and/or the output 
from strace, running the Simple Test Case minimal source program, 
demonstrating the problem.

As the problem is a file open, you may also want to add the output 
from running ls -l, stat, getfacl, and icacls on the file, as file 
open problems often result from permissions issues, so it is also 
important to run cygcheck, tests, and file info using the same 
environment and credentials as when the problem occurs.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
