As Hack mentioned earlier, moving cygwin.dll could very well lead to
unexpected problems. The RVM_EINTERNAL error can however be caused by
many things, one of which is having not enough diskspace or swapspace.

However it only tries to allocate 10MB of RVM data, which shouldn't
really be a problem.

The main problem with RVM_EINTERNAL is that it is a generic errorcode
for 'something went wrong in the RVM internals'. It could be anything
ranging from a clock that occasionally runs backwards in time or a
problem creating the LOG and DATA files in /usr/coda, to a failed read,
write or mmap operation.
