Yes. The problem is even worse: it does not retry to update the "in-
use" files again even after the file is not in-use (including reboot).
Scenario: tried to update 1.7.0 installation. Shut down sshd and cron,
forgot ssh-agent. Got "in-use" message saying either shut down the
process or you have to reboot. Killed ssh-agent, tried again, setup went
ahead. Cygwin was still on 1.7.0. Rebooted: no change. Reverted VM to
snapshot, closed /all/ Cygwin process: no problem.
