Independent of topic/forkables: With Cygwin 3.0.0 replacing/removing an
exe or dll in use does fail on Server 2019 while it does succeed on 2012.
The error messages on Server 2019 is 'Permission denied'.

Cygwin 2.11.2 does "remove" (to trash) a dll in use on both 2012 and 2019.

Attached is the mv.strace from the commands below on both 2012 and 2019,
with Server 2019 being a default install from scratch with GUI, but without
anything extra - hence without the WSL anywhere.

Use the commands below to see the difference between 2.11.2 and 3.0.0.

Cygwin 3.0.0 + topic/forkables does work on Server 2012 as expected,
as well as for Server 2019 for when a wrong dll is found in the CWD.
Cannot test against removing a dll-in-use as long removing a dll-in-use
does not work.

Cygwin 2.11.2 + topic/forkables still does work on Server 2019.

These commands can be used for both with and without topic/forkables:
$ mkdir test-cygfork
$ cp /bin/bash /bin/cygiconv-2.dll test-cygfork/
$ cp /another/build/of/cygiconv-2.dll test-cygfork/cygiconv-2.dll.new
$ ./test-cygfork/bash -c '( for x in {1..5}; do find /var/run/cygfork; sleep 1; done )' &
$ strace -o mv.strace mv -f test-cygfork/cygiconv-2.dll.new test-cygfork/cygiconv-2.dll
