This is due to multiple packages providing the same file (at least at one
point in time). If package A used to provide a file, but package B now
does, but you don't upgrade A until after B, then the upgrade of A will
delete the file. At any rate, the fix is the same - rerun setup.exe, and
reinstall anything that shows up as incomplete.
I noticed, today, that while 'look' (part of util-linux) is present the package,
installs correctly (according to 'cygcheck') and works (loads and runs on
Vista), the 'dict' file is missing.
