environment is too large for exec

I'm seeing the following error from cygwin:

"environment is too large for exec"

I can try reducing the env - however - is there an option in cygwin to increase the current 'max env'?

Please include me in cc: in replies.



Note: In a prior run - I got the following [confusing] error. I'm assuming its the same issue.
