Sorry, but yes, that's what I thought.  It's a common enough problem for
people in a rush to get things running to skip a reboot.  Perhaps you
did skip a reboot at one point and things got a little wedged when you
ran later instances of setup.exe.  I'm not intimately familiar with the
guts of setup.exe to know for sure whether or not that is possible though.

On the contrary, I think it's a great reason to assume you didn't reboot
given your description of how cygwin1.dll eventually got updated and the
following quote:
