zsh 4.3.0 dev 1 with cygwin1.dll 1.5.15

I don't have a clear perception which mailing list is the more appropriate for 
this question, so I've sent a version of this message to the cygwin users' 
mailing list and to the zsh users' list.  Any help would be appreciated.

The problem is that I have had no success running zsh 4.3.0 dev 1 on the last 
two releases of cygwin1.dll, 

CYGWIN_NT-5.1 host 1.5.14(0.126/4/2) 2005-04-01 13:40 i686 
CYGWIN_NT-5.1 host 1.5.15(0.127/4/2) 2005-04-18 12:20 i686

The builds of zsh proceed with no undue problems, but test A05 fails.  The 
following is the message from running the cvs version of 4.3.0 dev 1 (pulled 
about 10h00 PDT, GMT +0700, 19 apr 2005) against cygwin1.dll 

./A05execution.ztst: starting.
Test ./A05execution.ztst failed: bad status 1, expected 0 from:
Error output:
      6 [main] zsh 2052 fork_parent: child 3084 died waiting for longjmp 
before initialization
(eval):4: fork failed: interrupt
Was testing: path (1)
./A05execution.ztst: test failed.
 249108 [main] zsh 2052 fork_parent: child 3640 died waiting for longjmp 
before initialization
ZTST_cleanup:2: fork failed: no such file or directory

When I try to run this build of zsh, every call to a non-builtin resource 
results in a fork failure. I have asked the cygwin mailing list if there 
might be some user configurable resource that would fix this problem.  On the 
other hand, the cygwin release of zsh 4.2.4 does run under this latest 
release of cygwin1.dll. Before I jump in, I wondered if anyone had already 
run into this problem and had any pointers to causes.
