Hmm, strange. It looks ok here:
tar tjf ~/g/tar/texmf/texmf-20000804-2.tar.bz2 | grep Cygwin
Maybe you already had a `usr/doc/cygwin' ligging around? That would
prevent creating the capitalised Cygwin from being created.

Yes. I've made a patch for setup.exe, which has been included, so
that it now accepts pre- and postremove scripts. The difficult thing
is to figure out what exactly should be done, and when.

Yes, I would think so too. I've received a few good reports, and sent
one small problem with solution to the cygwin list this week.
