problems installing perl-5.6.1-2

When I attempt to update perl via cygwin's setup.exe,
I get a series of dialog boxes like "unable to write to file d:/cygwin/lib/perl5/5.6.1/Getopt/Long.pm". There are several of these under /lib/perl5, and also some under /bin, like /bin/pod2man, etc.
I then used setup.exe to uninstall perl, and tried the install again. I still get these messages. Closer investigation shows that uninstall does not delete perl stuff in /bin/ and in /lib/perl5 -- should it?
relevant portion of setup.log is as follows:

I will try the obvious - uninstall perl via setup.exe, manually delete the things it leaves behind, and then run install.
Any ideas as to why this is happening?
