setup.exe only creates pure cygwin symlinks.  I suspect that the
original report of "These are supposed to be symbolic links to the
executables in the /usr/bin directory, but - for whatever reason - the
setup program +did not install them in a way that they were used as
symlinks afterwards" translates to:


Which would have been made clear if the guidelines specified in
http://cygwin.com/problems.html had been followed.
