Hi,

I tried an excerpt from the attachment in a web search engine:

A similar problem for Cygwin (which you seem to have misspelt as cgywin) was reported on
HTTP://HG.OpenJDK.Java.net/jdk7/build/raw-file/tip/README-builds.html#troubleshooting
which contains advice to see
HTTP://Cygwin.com/faq/faq.using.html#faq.using.bloda
which contains a warning re memory leaks. (The "heap" is a part of the memory.)

So, you seem to be presented with these options:
* determine which software conflicts with Cygwin and disable or uninstall the software which conflicts with Cygwin;
* do not use Cygwin;
* do not use Windows;
or
* do not use Geant4.

One other possibility not mentioned above is that the computer might not be giving enough memory to G++.exe. This might happen without any bugs even if the computer has enough memory. The Bourne Again SHell (BASH) (which is provided with Cygwin) provides a remarkably small fraction of available memory by default on any operating system.

With kind regards,
Colin Paul Gloster
