The operative word here is "seems to work".  The fact that you see no
problem already tells you that you don't need a lot of the things that
you have installed.  I curate a much smaller, but still pretty
substantial Cygwin installation than "full" at work and I know for a
fact that it only works on a 32bit system when the userVM in Windows
gets changed to 3GB, otherwise you'll collide with the Cygwin heap
pretty quickly.

YOu can check where everything got rebased to and when you see it got
rebased to where the heap should be then you know you're in trouble.

That's preferrable, but a 3GB user VM is at least worth a try (it still
won't save you if you insist on installing everything).
