I'm wondering that cygwin has fixed the hyperthreading-related bug[1],
only occurring on Windows >= XP, not until Win2000.
Well, there are some more recent posts on the list with some patches to
the cygwin-dll, but did not really find it fixed.

Well, facing this problem, and some others which seems that M$
implements things to prevent cygwin working on newer Windows-versions,
we have switched to Interix now - planning to use portage on Interix,
with wgcc[2] as 'cross-compiler' to produce native win32 executables.
