I've been struggling with this fork:retry issue for over a month and have yet to find a working solution.
The machines are Windows 7 64-bit with Cygwin 32-bit installation.
I run Setup and then install some bash scripts for the user.
Only some of the machines appear to be having this fork:retry problem.
And even reinstalling Cygwin does not appear to fix the problem.
/etc/profile: fork: retry: Resource temporarily unavailable
1 [main] bash 3236 child_info_fork::abort: C:\Cygwin\bin\cyggcc_s-1.dll: loaded to different address:

This may be grasping at straws, but do you have a large number of cygwin packages in your install?
At some times in the past, if you had a really large number of packages (it's the dll's in them that
are of primary concern), the rebasing (which tries to give every library a unique address range)
could use so much of your address space that dll's would start running into other areas. If this
might be a problem, maybe doing a smaller installation, with fewer packages, would work better.
