For some reason I know this is in the archives of the mailing list and I would
like to go ahead and voice my opion on Cygwin:

Cygwin is a great port of Linux kernal to Win32 and WinNT kernals.  It is great
help when you develop applications on Linux platforms.  However it does eat up
a great amount of ram usage and is susptible to more security breachs then  a linux
box in it self.   I would recommend to anyone who wants to develop a mud on a
win* system that they use MSVC 6.0 (and I can't wait from MSVC .net to come
out ^_^)

Now to the problem:
I used to host a mud on my system that used cygwin (I run a Win2k box btw) and
about every half day/whole day it would crash with a sygfault.  This may be your
problem also.  He had patched all of the basic olc stuff (oasis/dg scripts/etc.) and
for some reason it wouldn't stay up without sygfaulting.  I did a search on it and
found it in the mailing list archives somewhere.  I can however assume it is a sygfault.
