The correct solution for dealing with multiple cygwins on your system
is to remove all of the older DLLs.
If you have a distribution which distributes cygwin and that distribution
screws up an existing cygwin installation, then complain to the people
who provided the distribution. Their installation software is broken.
To repeat: There is no need to keep multiple versions of the cygwin
DLL on your system.
I'm closing this thread now.
