I downloaded the latest version of setup-x86.exe (and
setup-x86_64.exe) and updated both my Cygwin installs. The 64bit
version seems to be okay but on 32b Cygwin, I notice a discrepancy in
the dll version number between uname and cygcheck.

$ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-6.1-WOW64 [EDITED] 1.7.21(0.267/5/3) 2013-07-15 12:17 i686 Cygwin

$ cygcheck -V
cygcheck (cygwin) 1.7.22
