Well, I am the Cygwin maintainer for zsh, and there are two issues:
The original issue was with the executable /usr/bin/zsh being a link to
the real exe (eg: zsh-4.2.0). However, this is not a packaging error,
IMHO. /usr/bin/zsh is a *hardlink*, not a *symlink*, and Setup currently
just duplicates the contents of the linked file, rather than creating the
link, which is quite acceptable and doesn't cause any problems. What
zzapper experienced, I think, is a result of either improper
de/installation or that he'd setup a symlink locally and setup didn't
remove it before plopping down the new image. Either way, I don't
considder it a packaging error.
The second issue is with the postinstall script, below. There *are*
errors, but minor ones, at that. I've already corrected it and will be
uploading a new version RSN.
