Not a stupid question at all.  The problem you are having is a known
bug in 1.4.0, and I believe it is fixed for the upcoming 1.4.1.
However, this bit:

troubles me a little.  Can you check if there is a resolv.h in your
cygwin install?  I was under the impression (possibly incorrect) that
resolv.h existed.
