Hmmm... I haven't seen this before. I do use Win2kSP4 as a build &
testing machine, along with the shortcut regularly. I suppose it might
be necessary to rebase your Cygwin environment, but that's just a WAG.

Quite strange... What happens if you, after a fresh reboot, open a
Command Prompt and type:
zsh -i -l
Do you get the same error or something else?

Not a clue. You'll need to provide details about your Cygwin environment
as well as anything extra you might have installed.
