Setup installed to c:/cygwin/usr/bin

I have spent some time looking for a reference to this problem, but have not
come across it.

OS: Win2K
Installed cygwin via setup (both download and install), pretty much accepted the
defaults. Installed to C:\cygwin. Worked well.

Returned a few weeks later to add a few more packages. Setup appeared
to work well, but the new packages did not appear in /bin. Upon investigation,
I located the files in C:\cygwin\usr\bin. I moved them into C:\cygwin\bin,
and things seem to be working OK.

Why did they go into C:\cygwin\usr\bin? The standard global mounts are
there under HKLM.

Below is a portion of setup.log.full showing the installation of the man package.
What's with the '///'?
