This feels really wrong to me. If installing Cygwin under a non-admin
account results in a potential security vulnerability, then the
installer should be taking that into account. Applications that behave
differently depending upon how they are installed should have in the
installer an option for
* install for all users (requires administrator)
* install for the current user
Where install for current user installs the application configured so
that the current user account (and not others) can use it.
Just my two cents.
