Re: libPropList - Package removed long ago, still showing up in setup.ini?
Ah ha... thanks. I always thought that the setup.ini file was
overwritten each time without regard to its previous contents. I guess
I was wrong.

Check this out:

libPropList is still in setup.ini, but it doesn't appear to be anywhere
in the cygwin/release/* tree on sources.redhat.com. I would appreciate
some help figuring out why this is showing up in setup.ini.
Because just deleting the setup.hint doesn't get rid of the entry in
setup.ini. Some state is stored permanently in setup.ini until it is
deleted by hand, which I've done.
