Thanks for the helpful reply; knowing how Cygwin programs die (with SEGV etc.) may be the key. Perhaps I can catch the problem in a signal handler; getting the PID of the failed program would be the next hurdle. As far as the 2 contradictory paragraphs, the first refers to behavior in a good old reliable DOS console window; the latter refers to a Cygwin shell. The scenario going on in the kernel was enlighting Thanks again.
