Still, I can't reproduce the problem. I'm, too, running RTM versions
from MSDN, x86 and x64 Standard Edition. Just for kicks, I'll install
an Enterprise x64 in the next couple of days and try again.

Can somebody else confirm or deny such a problem on 2008?

As for Corinna, the problem does *not* exist for me either, and cygwin installs fine for the WS2008 x64 RTM. However since Vista I *do* always do fresh cygwin installs by downloading setup.exe and running them as Administrator (which in the default WS2008 case could be moot since you are logged in as Administrator anyway).
