Your home directory has spaces in it.  THat's going to break some
things.  See the users guide / FAQ.

Your mounts are messed up.  I don't know what that "_download\001" dir
is but I suspect that your / should be c:/cygwin, your /usr/bin should
be c:/cygwin/bin and /usr/lib should be c:/cygwin/lib.  Either fix your
mounts using "mount" and "umount" commands or rerun setup and point it
at c:\cygwin to install.  Most everything is going to be broken until
you fix this.
