  Ah, ok... well how about this:  instead of a monolithic shell script, you
divide it up into two: one that runs before setup.exe, using the network
dir's installation, and one that runs after, using the newly-installed local

  Write a .bat file that first calls the network bash to run the pre-setup
script, then calls setup.exe, then the local bash for the post-install.

  As long as the pre-install script exits everything properly, the cygwin
dll should be unloaded when bash exits back to the .bat file, then setup can
/install the local cygwin, and finally you'll start up the local bash with
the local cygwin dll and do everything after setup.exe on the local system.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
