I don't have Cygwin installed on that box, and have no Cygwin
directories in the PATH. The debugger gives the following list of
loaded modules that are not part of Windows:

emacs.exe       C:\emacs\bin\emacs.exe  23, 1, 0, 0                             
libXpm.dll      C:\emacs\bin\libXpm.dll                                         

and both of them seems to me loaded from the right location. It might
be very well some sort of image library conflict as disabling the
splash image hints it. I suppose making a custom build with debug
symbols compiled in and stepping in with a debugger would help. I'll
let you know what I find.
