Hello all,

When I compile a C program, the resulting executable runs fine under

any program I compile will terminate immediately and not do anything

Hi Wouter,

can you try from mintty

$ gcc -Wall -o ciao hello.c

$ ./ciao.exe
Hello, world!

$ echo $?

I can't give the strace output, as 'strace ./hello.exe' causes an
immediate segmentation fault. No idea why, but not something I'm going
to put energy into right now.

Symantec AV ?
I had the same issue and it is gone with cygwin-2.8.1-0.1 (test release)
