Not weird at all.  I could track this down to a point in Cygwin where
it neglects to close a handle to a symlink when instructed to follow
symlinks to their target.  I checked in a patch.  Please test the DLL
I uploaded at
  (md5sum compressed   5eab6680538279206bf23c54244825d2)
  (md5sum uncompressed e4833a601edad1571a9c6e0352a8e381)

which contains the fix.  This should not leave the stray handles to
vi, vim, etc in zsh.  And the side-effect should be that setup.exe
does not complain anymore in the original scenario.
