Cygwin 3.0.1-1 Breaks ALL cygwin applications on Windows 7 x64

I have a large installation of cygwin on Windows 7 x64 for the last decade that has been working without issue. When I use setup-x86_64.exe (2.895) to upgrade the cygwin 2.11.2-1 package to cygwin 3.0.1-1, all of my cygwin applications stop working. Simply executing a command (such as 'bash' or 'grep' or 'date') at a command line just yields a blinking cursor that never returns anything. As soon as I switch back to version 2.11.2-1 everything works again.
