Can you also run one from a bash shell (invoking it explicitly as
/bin/cygcheck)? Also, if you change the system PATH variable, you need to
restart cmd.exe, otherwise the changes won't be picked up. If
c:\cygwin\bin is in the PATH as cmd.exe sees it, cygcheck should be able
to find 'id'.

BTW, the version of setup doesn't seem to matter much.
