singular-icons: possible packaging error?

Hello Barry,

thanks for the email. This packaging "error" dates back to my 
predecessor who put the file there on purpose, to allow for the creation 
of a Windows start menu entry "cygwin setup" (with the setup.exe behind 
it). It also has to do with another distribution that we used to offer 
to SINGULAR users.

Anyway, I will remove the file from the package. There is going to be a 
new minor release of SINGULAR anyway, so that I will send new binaries 
for upload soon.

Thanks again and
best regards,
