I've been installing from a network setup.exe. I don't believe this leaves a
copy on a local system. My co-workers tell me there has to be a way to

I'm not sure why you believe your problems are based in recent Cygwin versions but if you wanted to backtrack to 1.5.x, see this link:


This an unsupported version of 1.5.x so if you go there, you're on your own.
If your problems truly are the result of some recent change to Cygwin, your
best bet is to investigate them, report the problems, and work to get them
resolved, especially if something has regressed.  Otherwise, you'll be
stuck in the past forever without an upgrade path.
