Thanks for that. I typoed the package, it should be libxcb-composite-devel.

I tried 3 new machines today, can reproduce the issue in all of them. All were Win7 x86_64. 2 VMs installed from scratch (one in English, the other German as in my first report) plus a system running on bare metal.

Attached the backtrace at memcpy_chk.c:48.
I've been trying to figure out what is going on from the source code, but I'm not really getting anywhere.

Does it suffice to install cygwin-debuginfo or do I need to set something up?
I ran gdb with `set cygwin-exceptions on` too, but no further information came up in the backtrace.

No source file named memcpy_chk.c.
Breakpoint 1 (memcpy_chk.c:48) pending.
