I just pushed a patch supposed to fix this issue.  The bug is actually
worse and potentially affects more than just ping.  Every time a socket,
socketpair, or accept call fails for some reason, there's a potential
SEGV.  Oh, boy, oh boy.

I've just uploaded developer snapshots to https://cygwin.com/snapshots/
Please test.

I think this qualifies for a 2.11.2 release pretty soon...
