cygwin stopped working




Terminal (bash) fails with:

Error: Could not fork child process: Resource temporarily unavailable (-1).
DLL rebasing may be required; see 'rebaseall / rebase --help'.

PC was rebooted and the cygwin was "refreshed".

Installer (version 2.884, 32bit) fails with:

The shell C:\Cygwin\bin\bash.exe can be launched, but any command fails to execute with:

bash-4.4$ ls
      1 [main] bash (6316) C:\Cygwin\bin\bash.exe: *** fatal error - cygheap base mismatch detected - 0x3922410/0x3962410. This problem is probably due to using incompatible versions of the cygwin DLL.
Search for cygwin1.dll using the Windows Start->Find/Search facility
and delete all but the most recent version.  The most recent version *should*
reside in x:\cygwin\bin, where 'x' is the drive on which you have


I do have another version of the cygwin dll file on the system (Plex installation) but that never caused any issues in the past.

Thanks for any tips?
