Ok.  This looks like a handle leak.  You're probably doing this on
Windows 9x and have something like "FILES=40" in your config.sys, right?

I've uploaded setup 1.33 to cygwin/latest.  It tries to be more diligent

directory as setup.exe.

Please try the new version of setup and, if it fails, send a directory
listing of the directory where setup.exe is located to
