Heh, cygcheck didn't work either, of course.

Now, I'm going to step up and show the egg on my face:  after Corrinna
asked me if I'd looked *everywhere*, I searched again.  This time, I found
'cygwin1.dll' way down inside C:\RECYCLER -- and it was in-use.  After I
got that out of the way, all is fine.  Why I didn't find that in the 5
searches I did last night, I'll _never_understand_.  :(

Sorry for the trouble, and thanks for the fast help!
