So I downloaded the latest cygwin-inst file and did a tar -xjf to my
desktop. Then I stopped all cygwin processes and copied the etc and usr to
C:\Cygwin. But then I got the same warning message the first time I ran my
script (but not subsequent times). But I also noticed that I had the new
files that should have been in /bin in /usr/bin and so on. I did the manual
copy to avoid the in use file replacement problem. I then manually moved the
contents of /usr/bin and /usr/lib to /bin and /lib to resolve the problem.

You have to update your mount.exe from a cygwin-inst-*.tar.bz2 too.
So what is the correct way to do the update from the cygwin-inst-?.tar.bz2?
