Thanks for the tip, but that didn't seem to have helped.
The registry setting CYGWIN_NOWINPATH=1 did not seem to affect the
environment as seen in bash.
The variable seems to be set:
but the path variable contains still all the common system locations:
bash-4.4$ echo $PATH
(x86)/iis express/PHP/v5.3:/cygdrive/c/Program Files/Common Files/Mic
rosoft Shared/Windows Live:/cygdrive/c/Program Files (x86)/Common
Files/Microsoft Shared/Windows Live:/cygdrive/c/Program Files (x86)/Intel/
iCLS Client:/cygdrive/c/Program Files/Intel/iCLS
Manually overriding the PATH variable in bash did not help (presumably
because the offending DLL is already loaded):
bash-4.4$ export PATH=/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin
bash-4.4$ echo $PATH
0 [main] bash (11276) C:\Cygwin\bin\bash.exe: *** fatal error -
cygheap base mismatch detected - 0x3C52410/0x36F2410.
This problem is probably due to using incompatible versions of the
Search for cygwin1.dll using the Windows Start->Find/Search facility
and delete all but the most recent version. The most recent version
reside in x:\cygwin\bin, where 'x' is the drive on which you have
installed the cygwin distribution. Rebooting is also suggested if you
are unable to find another cygwin DLL.

I do have another version of the cygwin dll file on the system (Plex
installation) but that never caused any issues in the past.
The method I use is to define CYGWIN_NOWINPATH=1 before I start
cygwin. Actually, I set it in my Windows User environment so it is
always set for my user. You can find the old windows path as the value
of the environment variable ORIGINAL_PATH. Then, when necessary, I add
only the previous path components that I require back in my
.bash_profile. In my cases,My path looks like:
$ echo $PATH
In your case, you may have Plex in your path. Make sure any Plex
related directories are not in your cygwin path.
A Google (or similar) search for "CYGWIN_NOWINPATH" will find many
pages on cygwin.com and stackoverflow.com.
