Does anyone know where I can get a slightly older cygwin1.dll

I tried reverting my entire cygwin installation to a much older one, but
that caused too much other grief.
Does going forward instead of backward (a.k.a. trying a snapshot[*]) help?
No, unfortunately not:
# Using the drive letter:
~/lib  $ cp u:/repository/main/lib/Statistics.hdb .
cp: skipping file `u:/repository/main/lib/Statistics.hdb', as it was replaced while being copied
# Using cygdrive:
~/lib  $ cp /cygdrive/u/repository/main/lib/Statistics.hdb .
cp: skipping file `/cygdrive/u/repository/main/lib/Statistics.hdb', as it was replaced while being copied
# Using the full network path:

~/lib  $ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-5.1 mushroom 1.5.20s(0.155/4/2) 20060326 22:52:56 i686 unknown unknown Cygwin
All of the above worked fine with 1.5.18, and I believe versions 1.5.19.
