Last night I began running a loop in which emacs (patched as I proposed)
repeatedly starts and then exits after 15 seconds [*].  So far there
hasn't been a single failure after more than 1300 iterations.  I don't
know what's different about bootstrapping, but it seems that tickling
Glib doesn't cause problems on Cygwin in ordinary interactive use of
Emacs.  (Keep in mind that my previous test, quoted above, showed that
the failure during bootstrapping always occurred within 1 second after
Glib got tickled.)

If no one objects, I'll go ahead and apply my patch later today.


Regarding this:


shouldn't it flagged, in some manner, to Cygwin ("Creators") list? For example,

"Bootstrapping Emacs with this patch fails on Cygwin so and so... but not on GNU/Linux... Have you some idea?..."

After all, trying to bootstrap Emacs trunk is not so much work... The big work, perhaps, is in understanding the failure, I think..
