Local -- FAT32

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.
