Sorry, I still need to learn not to say stupid speculative things without
thinking them through first :D.

FWIW, I ran the test case overnight on my old 450 MHz Pentium Pro SGI 320
running NT4, all packages up-to-date, and a cvs compiled cygwin1.dll from
2003-11-25 without issue. When my dual CPU system gets back, I'll try it
Even though we don't expect that this is fixed, could those that can
reproduce this problem try it with a snapshot? Since 1.5.6 is near, it
would be good to check it now.
