Most likely your cygwin1.dll wasn't replaced by the upgrade because it was
in use by one or more Cygwin processes.  The latest part of setup log
(/var/log/setup.log) should contain "reboot replacement" if that is the
case.  Simply reboot.  It's also possible (but very unlikely) that you
have more than one version of cygwin1.dll on your system.

For the future, it would have been easier if you had attached the output
of "cygcheck -svr" to your bug report, as requested in the Cygwin problem
reporting guidelines at <http://cygwin.com/problems.html>.
