Jürgen Wagner nailed it; it was my antivirus, and disabling the

However, this time-wasting pattern of dealing with the issue by end users
is not a good way.

A better approach would be to identify some common paterns of BLODA interference and code a test which can detect the interference. This should be executed at startup by the Cygwin shell so that a diagnostic can be displayed to the user.

  WARNING: Cygwin detected interference from a "dodgy" application
  such as anti-virus software. Your Cygwin installation may malfunction.
