In addition to what is above...
I've been using these to generate the problem. HTH.

$ cat /etc/postinstall/
#!/bin/bash -x

# CYGWIN_DEBUG=/bin/cygpath
# set CYGWIN_SLEEP=20000


TOPFOLDER="$(cygpath -A -P)/Cygwin-XFree86"

$ cat ~/scripts/t3

if [ -f /etc/postinstall/ ] ; then

cygstart -- /install/setup.exe --no-md5
