This seems to be a bug in install-scsh-pkg. The value of dest-dir comes from
there. Setting dest-dir to the empty string "" causes the heap overflow
somewhere in install-scsh-pkg.
IMO the default value of dest-dir should not be set to "/" since this breaks
the mkdir call on cygwin (and is not nice on Unix/Linux, even if it does not
break). I think, the default value should be set to "", and therefore the
heap overflow bug needs be fixed.
Brian, to work around this for now and to reproduce the os-error, you can use
"scsh-install-pkg --prefix /usr/local/lib/scsh/scx/ --dest-dir /."
