I have tried that, and it hasn't helped.  But you're right; the
postinstall hangs at /etc/postinstall/,
.../texmf**.sh, and so on.  (I've seen postings about XFree86 scripts
hanging, but not about these.)

I tried the suggestions for kill -9 and also for using Windows task
manager to kill off cygwin.exe, but neither worked.  (There *is* no
cygwin.exe running when /etc/postinstall/ hangs, and
killing the various sh.exe's causes setup to complete, create the icons,
etc., but of course things are not properly set up.)
