There has been a great deal of correspondence on this issue in the Cygwin
mailing list!  See posts on cygpath and setup hangs.

To complete the installation, start up cygwin and manually run any outstanding
.sh scripts in /etc/setup.  Then rename them to .sh.done, e.g.

The hang won't occur if you start setup from a .bat file or any type of
command window.  I circumvent the problem by starting setup.exe from a .bat

--start of setup.bat--
@echo off

chdir C:\cygwin 
--end of setup.bat--

(For C:\cygwin, substitute the location of the setup.exe file)
