Since upgrading to the 2002-Feb-10 snapshot (for the PostgreSQL fix),
I have been getting the following transient error messages from my
fetchmail daemon (i.e., NT service via cygrunsrv):

      0 [proc] fetchmail 820 wait_subproc: wait failed. nchildren 1, wait 1000, Win32 error 6
  30172 [proc] fetchmail 820 wait_subproc: nchildren 1, event[1] 0x14, pchildren[0] 0x1AE60000, events[0] 0x230, Win32 error 6
  50549 [proc] fetchmail 820 wait_subproc: pid 2236, dwProcessId 2236, hProcess 0x14, progname 'C:\cygwin\bin\sh.exe'

After the above occurs, fetchmail is wedged.  If I restart fetchmail, then
it is OK for a while. However, it eventually hangs in the same way again.

Any ideas of how to debug this further would be greatly appreciated.
