I have been using the following patch to fix the issue locally for a few weeks now (in addition to something equivalent to what Brian submitted for the _curses issue). These two patches combined give me a working python 2.7 on cygwin 1.7. I originally used something identical to Roumen's patch, but later started using the patch below after reading up on __declspec. Note that line 740 is also a candidate to be changed to dllexport, but I don't have the setup to test that.
