Could you try running one of the examples that crash under gdb
and report the results

Here is an example of running gdb on a program call test1.exe
Just in case in case you are not familiar with gdb

(gdb) is the gdb prompt

so in this case I entered
'run' at first opportunity
'bt'   at first prompt after crash



% gdb test1.exe
(gdb) run
Starting program: /src/mpatrol/tests/fail/test1.exe

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x6100d174 in cygwin_attach_handle_to_fd () from /bin/cygwin1.dll
(gdb) bt
#0  0x6100d174 in cygwin_attach_handle_to_fd () from /bin/cygwin1.dll
#1  0x6100d1e8 in getenv () from /bin/cygwin1.dll
