A google search shows that this could be an access right problem of the dll. 
See for example http://www.cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2000-05/msg01141.html

removing -fdata-sections with gcc 3.3 may result in runtime seg faults, 
because the auto-import-functionality depends on this. You can find more 
informations about this topic with a google search using "auto-import 

Can you please check if the problem is gone, when you set the x access rights 
to all used dll's  in the cygwin path. You can get the used dll's of an 
application by running 

$ cygcheck <application>
