Ok. This looks like a handle leak. You're probably doing this on
Windows 9x and have something like "FILES=40" in your config.sys, right?
I've uploaded setup 1.33 to cygwin/latest. It tries to be more diligent
about closing everything. It also creates the temporary files in the same
directory as setup.exe.
Please try the new version of setup and, if it fails, send a directory
listing of the directory where setup.exe is located to email@example.com
