There is no mystery here.  The version of cygwin1.dll that you're
looking at came from the 1.7.0-51 release.  Maybe you're confused about
where you should be looking or maybe you have a process running which is
using this dll and, so, could not have been updated by setup.  If it is
the latter then rebooting would help.

Regardless, this isn't a problem with the release.  It's a problem with
your installation.
