The FAST_CWD warning is gone, but uname is complaining (and won't run):

    "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000022).
Click OK to close the application."

This was 64-bit Cygwin.  I got the same error from mintty, it did not
create a window.

This is the file I downloaded:

     1/19/2017  14:17       3,319,106  cygwin1.dll
    12/14/2016   6:35       3,316,309  cygwin1.dll.orig

I was able to rename the files and the original cygwin1.dll works
again.  I can live with the FAST_CWD warning for now.
