When I had to rebase, I had to track down and stop all cygwin services
as well.  I went to Windows Task Manager, added the image path name
and sorted by it to find what all from cygwin was still running, and
shut them down.  In my case, cron, sshd, and tftp deamons were
running.  Once *everything* from cygwin was shut down, running dash
inside the CMD shell, and then /bin/rebaseall inside the dash shell
worked for me.
