I just found an unfortunate side-effect of the move of the Cygwin 1.7
release area. If you use the new setup.exe for Cygwin 1.7 on a mirror
which hasn't catched up with the update yet, you are in danger to
overwrite your 1.7 installation with a Cygwin 1.5.25-based installation.
Be *VERY* careful to check the packages setup tries to update. If you
see that it tries to "update" your Cygwin from 1.7.0-68 to 1.5.25-15,
then CANCEL setup.exe IMMEDIATELY and try another mirror.
Hopefully this negative side-effect has been rectified by the mirror
updates within the next 24 hours.
