Uh, yeah, that's what I (said that I) did. As I said, it didn't help;
I get the same results:

knellis@COBQDPPJ1 ~
$ tar --version
tar (GNU tar) 1.23
Packaged by Cygwin (1.23-1)

$ cp /cygdrive/q/knellis/xyz .
cp: skipping file `/cygdrive/q/knellis/xyz', as it was replaced while being copied

knellis@COBQDPPJ1 ~

FWIW, cygcheck -cvs output, showing the downgraded version of tar,
is attached.

Still hoping for a solution or work-around.
