No, I am using a 32-bit Windows.
I also saw a message in archives about a problem between MSYS and the=20
iSafer firewall I use, but the problem is the same if I exit from this=20
Is there a solution to obtain a more explicit message using for example=20
a debugging tool ?

Well, I was looking for a utility I used to use. I thought it was from
sysinternals.com but I can't find it.
I've seen others report bad memory and lack of virtual memory space.
You are the first in a long time (I can't remember when) with this
issue. Do you have some process open that uses Cygwin? I'm grasping
for a needle in a haystack here. How much physical memory do you have?
How much virtual memory (swap space) do you have? Which version of
MSYS are you using 1.0.10 or 1.0.11?
