New release of setup.exe (

I'm happy to announce a new release of setup.exe. This version will
correctly set permissions for use with the ntsec setting of cygwin,
which is the default now. Additionally it allows the use of http proxies
that require a username with no password.

To download this version, simply click on the 'install cygwin now' link
on the cygwin homepage, or wait for setup.exe to be copied out to your
preferred mirror.

        null, so that an empty password is accepted elsewhere in setup.
