  Haha, very funny, but that doesn't make you any less wrong.  You were unable
to see something that was right in front of your face.  Given that, it's
perfectly reasonable for me not to just take your other claims at face value
but need some kind of verification, like steps by which to reproduce any
supposed bug.

  I thought after your vitriolic post about "so obvious a two-year old could
see it" that you were happy with this style of communication.  Regardless,
claiming that your mistaken assumption is "obvious" and everyone else in the
world is wrong for not seeing things your way is pretty much the definition of
needing to get over yourself.

  I note that in this entire post you haven't addressed one issue of
substance.  All the points that I made are unrebutted, and still relevant,
regardless of how you feel about the tone in which I delivered them.

  Went back and looked at the log files and realised that you did choose the
wrong directory on the local package dir screen after all, did you?  Now
you're manufacturing an argument so that you can throw a dramatic strop and
storm out without having to admit that you made a mistake?

  Well, never mind.  You've got the working minimal cygwin installation you
wanted now, and you know how to do it again, and setup.exe works perfectly
well to do what you want, so it is indeed true that you don't need my help.
