It's worth trying 1.7.22.

We discourage people from following Cygwin advice from ad-hoc sites. In
this case, it provides a synopsis of how to do this and then points to a
link in the Cygwin FAQ from where the synopsis came. Two things should
make anyone think twice about the information at this site:
1. It points to the Cygwin FAQ as the source.
2. The link to the Cygwin FAQ is broken.
This is a good indication that the information you're getting is second-hand
and outdated. Unfortunately, this is a common occurrence for
these sites proclaiming to have useful Cygwin information. That's why we
discourage consulting them.
Currently, I don't see anything that egregious at this site so I think
you're OK for now.

Yeah, that of course assumes that the uninstall undid all that the install
did. There's not a good way to verify that. If you can narrow down the
time-frame (with the Cygwin Time Machine for example - Google it) when you
see the problem appear, that could help find a solution, assuming you're
still seeing the problem with 1.7.22.
