It looks like the detection of the number of cores in your machine does not
work with cygwin because when you only set "-ntmp 1" N OpenMP threads
should be auto-set (N=#cores), but based on your output it seems that only
one is used. Could you please verify this? I am not sure whether this is an
inherent problem with cygwin or a bug (and as I don't have access to cygwin
I can't test).
