I used an older cygwin1.dll with jtr 1.7.2 and that did the trick! I can now do -show again using this older cygwin1.dll file dated May 26th 2005. I first tried an already compiled ver og 1.6.39 which had this older cygwin1.dll - it worked. Then I copied over latest cygwin1.dll (31st Jan 2007) - did not work. Then I tried old cygwin1.dll with jtr 1.7.2 - it worked :) > Maybe you could try on 32-bit Linux?

I can try 32bit Linux and maybe also 64bit windows in VmWare, but I really think that the issue is caused by cygwin alone...
