  Disable the "Logitech Process Monitor" service associated with your webcam?  Uninstall Agnitum Outpost?  Disable McAffee's buffer overflow protection feature?  (I'm beginning to suspect something is interfering in your system; buggy device drivers / AV / PFW software have been known to break cygwin in just this kind of way).

  Blow away your current install using the procedure in the FAQ, but keep the local package directory where setup.exe stored its downloaded files.  Re-run setup.exe, tell it to "install from local directory", bingo.  Just click all the way through.

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