So you mean that when you ran 'setup.exe' and got to the page titled
"Cygwin Setup - Choose Installation Directory", your "Root Directory"
read as 'C:\Cygwin\bin' and you did not change that to 
'C:\cygwin_etc\_download\001'?  Well, if you didn't make that change, 
you're doing something else that alters the default mount paths.  You 
should find a way to keep from doing that.

I agree with Dave Korn as well.  You have *many* similar packages from 
many different sources all of which have potential to clash with each other.
It is *not* a goal of Cygwin tools to work seamlessly with any and all other
versions of like tools.  If you have further problems with 'tetex' or other 
tools for which you have multiple variants installed, please try to narrow 
down where the problem is coming from and consult the appropriate source for 
guidance on the issue found.
