Did you kill the ash or bash postinstall script?  They copy /bin/bash.exe
to /bin/sh.exe, and if that does not happen, cygwin will be pretty
unusable.  It would be nice to figure out why that didn't happen.

Other than that, nothing jumped out at me as an obvious source of your
problems, but it could be that there is still some other service using an
older version of the .dll still loaded in memory.  Have you rebooted since
you deleted other copies of cygwin1.dll?
