It's better to keep the discussion on the mailing list, so that others 
can benefit (and help) also.

Until someone figures out the underlying cause of the "unable to map" 
error for cygSDL*.dll, my only suggestion is to try to work around the 
problem as I did for gimp: avoid using SDL.  In your case, I think SDL 
is brought in via the package libwx_gtk3u3.0_0.  If you look at the 
source for that package, you'll see that it uses the configure option 
--with-sdl.  So you could try to rebuild it without that option.
