simply cygwin1.dll

May seem sort of newbish, but I just noticed that one cannot move cygwin1.dll
into place after removing the old one. For instance, if I download a snapshot
to some tmp directory, exit all cygwin related apps and use explorer to move
the new dll from the tmp to c:\cygwin\bin - I'll get the standard crop of
bad dll related failures. However if I *copy* the file (ctrl-drag) things
work fine.  I presume this is some kind of windows dll manipulation thing or
is it just my system?
