This doesn't seem like the standard kind of fork failure that's fixed by 
rebasing.  For one thing, I'm on 64-bit Cygwin.  For another thing, the 
error message doesn't refer to being unable to remap a DLL to the same 
address as in the parent.

In any case, I did a full rebase, which didn't help.  I also manually 
rebased the problematic DLL cygSDL-1-2-0.dll to an address below the 
previously lowest base address of a Cygwin DLL, and that didn't help either.

I think there's something else going on.  It would help if some other 
people would try to reproduce the problem.  [I assume you already tried.]
