I was just shutting everything down, going to c:\cygwin and untarring
from msysGit.

But apparently that's not correct because now I have stuff in
C:\cygwin\usr\bin .

Feature request: would it be possible to make the -inst snapshots not
depend on the mounts so you could just untar them from cmd/winrar/7zip/msys?
