gimp crashes for me during its initialization when it is querying plugins.  Running it under gdb shows that the crash occurs when gimp (via g_spawn_async) tries to fork a subprocess to run a plugin.

This doesn't seem like the standard kind of fork failure that's fixed by rebasing. For one thing, I'm on 64-bit Cygwin. For another thing, the error message doesn't refer to being unable to remap a DLL to the same address as in the parent.

In any case, I did a full rebase, which didn't help. I also manually rebased the problematic DLL cygSDL-1-2-0.dll to an address below the previously lowest base address of a Cygwin DLL, and that didn't help either.

I think there's something else going on. It would help if some other people would try to reproduce the problem. [I assume you already tried.]
