I run MinGW/MSYS on a Win 98 and a Win 2000 system. On the first one I get =
problems with fork() after some time.
Sometimes it is not possible to start any other (windows) application after=
such an event. Windows complains about a lack of memmory.
The only way to cure the problem is to reboot the whole machine.
This looks like a possible memmory leak in the MINGW32 shell to me.
I can't find anything in the archives on this subject. Is it a known proble=
m and is there something to prevent it?
An example of a MINGW32 shell report.
