Dear All,

Perhaps it can help somebody.

Today I have got on my new notebook the same problem as described here:

>> fatal:systemfunc: cannot create child process:[errno=12]
>> during the call to these simple "log" procedure:>>
>> ; add date and time string to console output
>> procedure _log(s:string)
>> begin
>> print(systemfunc("date +%F' '%T") + " " + s)
>> end

The solution has been found here:
1) Close out of Cygwin (and all cygwin processes).
2) Open a Windows command prompt (start -> run - > type 'cmd' or on vista :
start -> type 'cmd' in the start search window)
3) Go to your cygwin bin directory. For me it is c:\cygwin\bin.
4) Type ash
5) Type '/usr/bin/rebaseall'
6) Resolve any errors (I had a warning that went unresolved and it still
worked fine)
7) Reboot...and you should be good.

Best regards,

P.S. Reboot is not necessary
