This issue has been raised (and discussed) before.
Looking at the code, it seems that setup has an unattended mode (though
what exactly that is I'm not sure, and you may still need to allow sshd to
interact with the desktop, as it'll pop up a window).  There are also some
command line flags -- check the archives of the cygwin-apps mailing list.
