I've applied this patch.

I like the "Reinstall" option but I am not quite sure what the
"Sources" option does.  It will install the sources from the
requested source, whether it is the internet or the local directory,

One problem that I had is that the installation of the sources
ignored my mount setting for /usr/src and/or /src.  It extracted
directly to (in my case) f:/cygwin/usr/src which made the extraction
invisible to me, since /usr/src is mounted elsewhere.

I don't know if this is a new problem of if setup.exe has always
worked like this, but this is a bug that could theoretically cause
us problems.  Anyone want to look at this one?

Thanks for the patch.
