Trying MSF 3 beta on vista, no can do

Off the top of my head, and without any testing, I'd say that is
caused by Vista's Address Space Layout Randomisation (ASLR) feature
causing issues when the Cygwin environment tries to do a fork().

If you haven't heard of ASLR, it's a method to randomise .exe and
loaded dll's layout in memory to prevent arbitrary code execution from
working reliably.

If you add Framework3\bin\ruby.exe to ASLR's exception list, I believe
you will not encounter this problem. YMMV, please let the list know
how you go.
