I wonder if this is a clash between the cygwin runtime and the MSVC
runtime.  I can imagine things going wrong if memory allocated by
malloc in one is passed to free in the other, etc.

Did you try compiling with "-mno-cygwin"?  That tells the cygwin-hosted
gcc to compile for mingw (an unusual form of cross-compiling in a sense).
Mingw uses the MSVC runtime DLL (or the CRTL runtime DLL depending how
it is configured).

Otherwise I can't think of anything to suggest I'm afraid.
