Maybe, not this particular problem but it will others.

What was strange was the list not just the entry.  It should have listed the
mounted directories.  This is due to the fact that you've a snapshot dll and
things have changed.  You'll need the cygcheck.exe from the cyg-inst tarball on
the snapshots page to list it correctly.

Why are you using gzip from b19?  Gzip is distributed with b20.1.  Why not use
that.  This would be the problem you had with tar.  YOU SIMPLY CAN'T MIX DLL'S.
 You should only have ONE in the path.

I've not had opportunity yet to try your script.  It'll have to wait till I get
home this PM EST.

Maybe, or possibly your environment.
