After a fresh cygwin install, I built qt-x11-free-3.2.3. Various qt 
examples were failing to execute, giving the a dialog box with the 
following error:

Application Error
The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click on OK 
to terminate the application.

This was resolved by removing the compiler option -fdata-sections and 
rebuilding the applications.

Qt sources were downloaded from the link at

Gcc version is 3.3.1.
