You should not have to rename anything.  A normal upgrade of any package
under Cygwin will first uninstall/remove the old files (thus there will
be no /usr/bin/zsh) before the new package in unpacked.  That is, unless
setup messed up and didn't remove the old files.

I've done several upgrades and fresh installs and have not seen the
problem you describe above.  BTW, /usr/bin/zsh is a symlink to
zsh-4.2.0.exe, so don't rename it, simply point the symlink to the
correct exe name.
