So this isn't a fresh install and in fact there is not only some Cygwin
process running but a full blown Perl that has loaded a number of
modules.  How'd you manage to do that before Cygwin was ready
installing?  Are you perhaps reporting from a follow-on invocation of
setup.exe after the first install already failed?

For your current case, you need to get rid of _all_ running Cygwin
processes.  Best idea is to open a shell and issue

  /usr/bin/rebase-trigger fullrebase
  /usr/bin/pkill .

(you need to have procps installed for this command to be available).
Then run setup again to have it re-do the rebase and run all postinstall
scripts that failed before.  But I'm still interested how that initial
failure could have occured, so if you could maybe look in
/var/log/setup.log if something indicates what happened there that would
be good.
