Wow, has this message really been waiting in the tech-talk queue that long?  
Hopefully you've already found the solution, but I'm answering here for 
completeness.

Does your PATH variable contain both the base/bin/cygwin-x86 and 
sequencer/bin/cygwin-x86 directories where the DLLs are installed (note bin, 
not the lib dirs)?  It is highly annoying that there is no message displayed 
when a needed DLL cannot be not found and the binary just quits with no 
message.  Of course this isn't the only reason this might be happening, but 
it has hit me several times.
