Resource temporarily unavailable launching idle under cygwin

Hello everyone. Trying to run idle from a cygwin session on Win2k
(yuk, but I must) I'm getting the following error message. It seems
something more Windoze-driven that Python driven, and I'm not and don't
wanna be an expert on that OS. Since the group has a good mix of users
in different platforms, perhaps someone can help.

Python runs fine, my programs run fine, and I can edit in vim and run
my code. However, would be nice to have idle available from time to
time

Thanks in advance!!

As a sidenote, I sent twice this message as an email to
co**************@googlegroups.com as instructed on the group digests,
and it bounced immediately. Did this method of posting change?

Thanks!

PS: I already tried what suggested in a previous message on the groups
"Python 2.3.2 spawn problem" - Uninstalling and reinstalling python
without luck.

Python 2.4.3 (#1, May 18 2006, 07:40:45)
[GCC 3.3.3 (cygwin special)] on cygwin

Thanks!

You need to rebase your system:
