I had a look into this and even rearranged the behaviour when --help
output is requested...

However, I'm mildly sure this behaviour didn't change in the last couple
of years.  The reason is that setup is not a console application but a
GUI application.  When running a GUI application from CMD, CMD will
detach.  Of course, when --help output is requested, setup calls
AllocConsole, but that's too late.  This does not occur in a Cygwin
shell becasue Cygwin always waits for process completion unless the
process is sent to the background.

I now made the latest setup 2.864 available as standard setup version
on sourceware and removed the test releases.
