7.4.2 on cygwin is not supported yet and won't be until cygwin version 1.5.10 is released some time this year
from what I understand. There was an earlier post from Jason Tishler I believe that outlined why 7.4.2
won't work with cygwin 1.5.9
If 7.4.1 doesn't have the same problem with shutting down unexpectedly as 7.4.1-3 does go with that one if
you can't wait for 1.5.10 to be released.
