I think I see what's happening.  Setup.exe *will* automatically downgrade
packages from "test" to "curr" -- it's a known issue.  My guess is that
you've installed "login-1.9-6", got the error, and decided to upgrade
"cygwin".  You then installed the "curr" cygwin package, which is
1.3.22-1, and that also downgraded your login package to 1.9-5.  If you'd
selected the "Exp" set of packages, you'd've gotten both cygwin-1.5.0-1
and login-1.9-6 (with 32-bit UIDs).

FYI, you can always use the "Partial" view in setup to find out *exactly*
what's going to get (re)installed on your system after you press "Next".
