I am not Qt savvy, but I can think of two generic things to check:

- The Qt version in the cygwin libraries you have, versus what qtermwidget expects.

- The version of the C compiler (gcc keeps evolving, and that sometimes breaks things).
   Maybe there is info on the web about Qt issues with various version of gcc.
