Re: Upgrade from 1.5.25 to 1.7.1 fails.

  No -- my package directory is G:/cygwin/installs/packages.
      I mv'd that to G:/cygwin/installs/packages.sav
      and make G:/cygwin/installs/packages again.
      But Setup failed again in the same way.
      I (or any local user) can write that drive
      and it's subdirectories just fine...

      No difference -- same problem.

This is with Windows XP SP3.  Cygwin's root is C:/cygwin.
Drive C: is NTFS and G: is FAT32.
