Weird. On two installations (Windows XP and 2008 R2) "vi" and "ex" 
exist. On my main Windows 7 it's gone (not that I ever used "vi" for 
"vim"). I got a warning during setup that setup.exe could not unpack 
these files because they were "in use" (but they weren't) and after 
clicking on "retry" the installation continued.

In setup.log.full I can see:
unlink F:\cygwin\bin/vi
unlink F:\cygwin\bin/ex
Installing file cygfile:///usr/bin/vi
io_stream::mklink (cygfile:///usr/bin/vi->cygfile://vim-nox.exe)
Installing file cygfile:///usr/bin/ex
io_stream::mklink (cygfile:///usr/bin/ex->cygfile://vim-nox.exe)

...but that's excactly what I see on the two other installations, too. 
The only difference I can see is that the other installations are on a 
NTFS volume and this on is FAT32.
