Just to clarify I wasn't insinuating that it's a feature of Houdini that is accessable through cygwin, just that you can get this behaviour through the shell that you otherwise won't get in the windows task manager...

For the record, Houdini has nothing to do with Cygwin. I'm not sure why
people keep thinking this.
Note that the Unix mechanism used to achieve "kill -SEGV houdini" is
done via interprocess signaling, a concept that does not exist on Windows.
