cygwin unable to remap dll to same address as parent

When you are working with Cygwin, sometimes you would get an error like this:
“unable to remap some.dll to same address as parent someapp 4292 fork: child 3964 - died waiting for dll loading, errno 11”
Then you would need to run rebaseall.
In order to run it, close all you Cygwin windows. Make sure that all of the perl and cygwin processes/services are closed.
Open a command prompt (windows command prompt) and go to your cygwin directory.
From the root of your cygwin directory, execute bin\ash.exe.
Ash (a unix shell) will start. Inside ash you then execute:
Once it is done, exit and close the command prompt. If it still does not work even though you did the above: Reboot.
