Sorry for the delay.  I was on vacation.  In any case, this was
crucial.  The temp directory turned out to be somewhere else.  There
was a gconfd directory that I removed, and it works for webdav

This would also explain why reinstalling cygwin didn't work.  I would
delete all of C:cygwin to start over, but it wouldn't delete that
temp directory (something like C:Documents and Folders/(username)/something/something/Temp).
