We need to get the ideas from this thread into the FAQ on uninstalling
cygwin. Also, add a mention that inetd is a potential cygwin service -
since it can run without the assistance of cygrunsrv, it might not show up
in 'cygrunsrv -L', but you CAN delete it with 'cygrunsrv --stop inetd;
cygrunsrv --remove inetd'.
Life is short - so eat dessert first!
