Any fix/work-around for post-install hang problem, yet?

Possible additional information.
Back last week end I removed totally and did a fresh download and
install of Cygwin on my XP machine.
I selected everything from the setup screens ( Cygwin and
Cygwin-Gnome), when setup got to the post-install phase it locked up in the
"_update-info-dir" line. That is no cpu being used by setup. I let it run
for over 30 minutes then pressed cancel.
Thinking that I would have to un-install every thing I re ran setup
and selected uninstall for everything. Instead of uninstalling things all
the post install scripts where run. I then had Cygwin installed and as I
found out later with no history that it was installed according to setup.
This install worked, I compiled a new version of VIM with GTK+ OK.
Thinking that the number of packages had been the problem to get setup
information I have re-installed all the packages in smaller groups.
As things seem to be working OK I have not removed and reinstalled (the
problem with OpenSSH-3.8.p1-1 was occurring before I reinstalled, I had
totally stuffed up Cygwin/X while trying to fault find this.)
