When I type 'emacs' at the bash prompt, emacs does not start and the

'emacs --version' do the same, nothing is printed.
My alternatives are set such that emacs points to emacs-w32. I also have
emacs-nox and that works fine.
If I run 'strace emacs-w32' I get an error dialog:
"The procedure entry point WebPDecode could not be located in the
dynamic link library C:\cygwin\bin\cygMagickCore-6.Q16-2.dll."
Is your installation of libMagickCore6_2 up to date? I get
$ objdump -p /usr/bin/cygMagickCore-6.Q16-2.dll | grep WebPDecode
48ee2c 8 WebPDecode
Is this a known problem? If not I can attach cygcheck.out and the output
from strace if that will help.
It's not a known problem. If updating your Cygwin installation doesn't
help, please send cygcheck.out.
