You can fix this locally quickly using:

$ fgrep 7001 /usr/bin/rebase*
/usr/bin/rebaselst:    touch -t 7001010000  "$1"
$ sed -i /7001/s//198001/ /usr/bin/rebaselst
$ fgrep 1980 /usr/bin/rebaselst
    touch -t 198001010000  "$1"

and test this fix by running "rebase-trigger full", shutting down everything
Cygwin, downloading and running setup.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
