sphinx-build --help : Aborted (core dumped)
Cannot rebuild our docs because sphinx-build keeps aborting.
This is under Cygwin but I got the same behavior under Linux Mint.

An empty stackdump file is created in the working folder.
Tried older versions, same thing. A detailed error message would be nice.
