RE: Update apparently not current

No,  nothing like that.  And the package that was downloaded by the
setup installer was wrong:

.net%2fcygwin/release/cygwin> ls

So  I guess I'll just try it again from a different download point,
perhaps my web cache isn't flushing correctly,  though I find it hard to
believe that that old a version would still be there.  

I have had a recent issue with my facility 1.5.25-7 remote/auto
installer failing  on the shell script portion because of an improper
version of cygwin1.dll.  This problem is solved if I rename cygwin1.dll
to something else and then rename it back to cygwin1.dll.  I'm also
hoping that that is fixed in the new build.

  Did you by any chance ignore a warning message explaining that the DLL
was still in-use and would not be replaced until you next reboot?
That's the most common cause of this sort of mysterious situation.

  Looks like the mirror's up-to-date to me.

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