Cygwin won't install (it hangs in the post-install scripts).
Deterministically hangs when running the post-install scripts. Running in
compatibility mode with Windows Server 2003 no longer helps, as it used to
help in the past with the beta and CTP versions of Windows Server 2008. I
can't find any way to complete the installation of Cygwin.
Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Edition (x64), the final version (RTM)
any, including version 1.5.25-11 from March 9, 2008
