The only two apps on the machine are Bloomberg and Redi.

I have absolutely no shell access now, and I can not find
any cygcheck anywhere (setup must have uninstalled it
during past attempts to reinstall packages).
I have been fighting this for another two weeks with no
progress whatsoever. Does any documentation exist that
describes the least painful way to reinstall everything
(specifically including what I should back up)? I also
would place a high value on not having to download all of
the packages again.
I keep re-running setup over and over again, and it keeps
telling me about files in use (/etc/postinstall/bash.sh -
I can't even find a file with that name, as that directory
only contains files with a ".done" extension).
Also, can someone point me to any documentation regarding
the default/optimal permissions for cygwin files and
