It only happens on 2K8 if that's what you're asking for.  So far I don't
have any idea how to fix this problem.  The effect is really puzzeling.

 I tried a slightly older version of server 2008. I am not sure which
 one it is - most likely RC0. And Cygwin works like a charm. I have no
 clue what's the big difference between the two.

 I tried Version 6.0 (Build 6001: Service Pack 1, v.275) and Cygwin
 works. (Probably RC0)
 I tried Version 6.0 (Build 6001: Service Pack 1, v.667) and Cygwin fails. 
 (RC1)

 I also think it is a bug that will hopefully go away soon. Hope this
 is useful to others.


I did some more testing.

It seems that the hang problem is specific to python only. I tried the
Windows Server 2008 with Hyper V RC1 version which is a later build
than the enterprise RC1 version. The python hang persists. However,
cygwin installation with or without python goes through without a
problem. Python hangs when opening the interactive interpreter shell
or when running a python script. Commands like python --help work
just fine.

How could I debug it further? What tools do cygwin developers usually
use to figure out where the problem is? I tried using WinDbg but could
not make much sense out of it.

 Windows 2008 Server is not yet supported.


Thanks for the clarification. Is there a plan for supporting it in near future?

I was under the impression that server 2008 is based on Vista and
Cygwin already works on Vista. Obviously, they are sufficiently
different.

As usual, new OS versions are supposed to be supported around the
time they are officially released.

I have 2K8 RC1 installed myself and I see these strange hangs, too.
