In this case you should be able to reproduce the problems you're having
from outside of the executable, by simply calling the relevant Cygwin
programs with appropriate parameters from a particular directory.  If you
can do that, please let the list know the exact errors you're getting and
the exact steps to reproduce the problem with the newer versions of the
Cygwin programs.  The output of "cygcheck -svr" as an uncompressed text
attachment would also be helpful.  If the errors aren't reproducible from
a regular bash command line, see what other variables may be present,
e.g., network shares.
