Running rebaseall on Cygwin

I'm following the instructions from this post on how to run the rebaseall command: Cygwin fatal error unable to remap.. What does it mean?

After I enter "rebaseall" (in Cygwin bash), I get the following message:

rebaseall: only ash or dash processes are allowed during rebasing. Exit all Cygwin processes and stop all Cygwin services. Execute ash from Start/Run... or a cmd or command window. Execute '/bin/rebaseall' from ash

I also tried the same (after restarting computer) in the Windows command prompt and get the same exact result.

How can I rebaseall?

Run ash.exe from the cygwin bin directory from Windows explorer or the Start->run on the desktop. From the ash prompt run rebaseall.
