I did test both the 32 and 64 bit version, but not with the -D flag, 
just interactively. Thanks for pointing out that gap. I only had a 
chance to look briefly at the failure, but it occurs on 2.0.5 32 and 
64-bit builds, as well as the existing 2.0.4 32-bit package. Since it's 
strictly not a regression, I'd push for it not holding up the update if 
everything else work, but is still be a nice to have that I'll look at.

As another packaging question, I get that cygport is a build helper not 
package management, but is there an easy way to install a resulting 
binary package on a local system that ties in with the setup.exe 
packaging tracking? I'd like to be able to actually test packages in 
deployed state with and without the debug information present, and be 
able to subsequently remove it as well, for which tar xfJ doesn't do 
such a hot job.
