Ok. My Emacs suffered from a bad hair day today - two crashes in a
row. Crash #1 happened while I was marking a region, I pressed the
down arrow key repeatedly when Emacs died. Crash #2 happened after I
published my planner pages to xhtml, the output page was written

A bug in the Cygwin DLL (64-bit only) was just discovered and fixed.
The bug could have prevented stack space from being committed after
the initial commit.  Could you try the latest snapshot from
https://cygwin.com/snapshots/ and see if these strange crashes stop?
I realize that you may have to run emacs for several weeks before you
can be confident.



I installed the cygwin1.dll snapshot. I'll let you know what happens.

The 200 h MTBF estimate might just have been a streak of luck: I reported two crashes in a row on July 7, and another one occurred on July 8 but I didn't get round to report that one yet. We might actually find out sooner than in a couple of weeks if the snapshot does *not* fix the problem. If it does, it'll take a little longer to be confident as you already mentioned.
