But noticing your environment calls out two other things.  You have a

visible in your path.  That's a *big no-no*.  I suggest removing the
version.  You should also consider upgrading your older installation at
convenient time in the future.

MSVCRT*.DLL is the VC++ C runtime. Cygwin has it's own so you have to be *real* careful to not mix the two in any way. Doing so can cause crashes.

Your environment in general looks OK now.  I see that you're even trying a
snapshot of the Cygwin DLL.  Good for you! ;-)  This is somewhat bleeding
edge code though so if you suspect an issue is Cygwin-based, drop back to
1.5.21 (or 1.5.19 if you must) to make sure that it's not something new.
