I stopped sshd and marked it for manual start using the Windows
administrative tools. I don't know anything about BrlAPI, but if it is
showing as stopped then it has always been stopped because I've never
started it. I then rebooted the computer to ensure the DLL was not in
use. I then attempted to start C:\cygwin\bin\ash.exe so I could run
rebaseall. That's as far as I've been able to get due to ash failing
to start. I've also tried dash on this computer, after trying the same
procedure on another computer and getting the message from rebaseall
telling me it could be run from either of those two shells. The dash
shell also fails. I've tried reinstalling dash from startup.exe, but
that has had no affect. I would have tried the same for ash, but I
don't see what package is providing it.
