- Subject: How to diagnose Cygwin / Windows shutdown problem
When I start Cygwin 1.3.22-1 and then try to shut down Windows XP using the
normal Start / Turn Off Computer procedure, Windows pops up the "End
Program - Cygwin ... Windows cannot end this program" dialog box. The
cygwin ps command shows only a bash shell running.
I tried using Start / Run / msconfig to disable the startup of all
applications and rebooting, but the problem persists. I'm guessing that the
next step would be to uninstall and reinstall Cygwin. Any suggestions?
