Oops, I figured out why this was happening and it was rather silly on
my part. I installed cygwin under the Administrator account and was
trying to run rebaseall under a different account. I thought using the
"run as administrator" option when opening ash would give it enough
privileges but apparently it's not enough. Running ash under the
actual Administrator account made the error go away and solved my
status_access_violation problems. Thanks for the help everyone.
