GNUTS! Vertical scroll bar in 'setup.exe' has scrolled to the great beyond!

I've been rerunning 'setup.exe' (always
downloading the most recent version
first) about once every two weeks
(minimum) [Hey, you guyz & galz iz
prolific and good! :-)] on my desktop
W2K machine (hostname == Erdos, AMD Athlon
1 GHz, 128 MB RAM, 1280 x 1024 screen)
and never a problem (GNOCK on WOULD --

was in favor of FOSS -- Free & Open

months on my notebook XP machine
(Toshiba Satellite Pro; hostname ==
Feynman, Pentium, 2 GHz, 512 MB RAM,
1600 x 1200 x 32 screen). Recently,

'setup', so I can't manually review

(Note: for purposes of 'setup', I share
no files between the two machines.)

 * Multiple mirror sites.
 * Multiple downgraded screen

No luck.

Attached is a comprehensive 'cygcheck of
the notebook system (host name ==

Anybody know how to fix this?


clue-, scroll- &, at least partially,

P.S. I am impressed beyond words at how
     efficient and effective 'setup'
     is, other than this problem!

     Good woik!
