Hmm, mintty doesn't depend on cygutils anymore since setup.exe creates
the "Cygwin Terminal" shortcut for it, and its setup.hint reflects
that. Yet setup.ini does indeed contain the following line for mintty:

requires: bash cygutils cygwin

Is the problem that the setup.hint doesn't contain a 'requires:' line
at all (since mintty has no dependencies apart from the implicit
'cygwin')? Does upset keep previous dependencies in that case?
