Yes, that's the behaviour I see. Just verified with setup-1.7.exe form the
Cygwin website. Setup checks the entries for any icons that don't already
exist. So if you uncheck the "Create icon on Desktop" the first time you
run setup, then the next time it will be checked again because the icon
doesn't exist. If you don't want a desktop icon you must uncheck it every
time you run setup.
