Are you looking at the setup.hint or the generated setup.ini? IIRC it's
added by upset automatically if it detects the package has .info files.

Didn't Eric upload a new bash package that is postinstal-less? Or is
there an older one in release-2/ that shadows the newer one in release/?
To make base-cygwin run first, it should suffice to list it as a
dependency of e.g. bash or cygwin and to have it not depend on
anything. Rationale: its dependencies (bash and coreutils) are in Base
and should be installed regardless so it shouldn't hurt to not list
them. All listing them does is cause loops.
