For those of you having an Insufficient Virtual Memory Allocation

  Please, disable _ALL_ of the malloc and xmalloc routines
  provided by the package.

  Then use the mmalloc library provided by cygwin.

To fix the most serious problems:
  Please, _READ_ the IMPORTANT UPGRADE NOTICE at the end of this note.
  Please, ensure that there is only _ONE_ cygwinb19.dll.
  Please, ensure that _ALL_ b18 binaries have been removed.
  Please, _USE_ the Searchable Mail Archives.

-------------------- IMPORTANT UPGRADE NOTICE ------------------------
You should get the following to update your cygwinb19 package:

Sergey Okhapkin's coolview package which contains an updated
cygwinb19.dll.  (Yes, even if you've already downloaded the b19.1
update from the Cygnus Site).

Mumit Khan's compilation of EGCS for the cygwinb19.dll; especially if
your using the C++ compiler.  The current version of the compiler that
comes with the tools has lots of problems that have been fixed with
the EGCS version.  This is a drop-in replacement for the GCC toolset.

URL's are listed above.
