It crashed the setup program, which seemed to indicate it was installing 
strangely named files.  It also corrupted the cygwin package directory.  
I could not run the setup program again even using a different mirror 
until I cleaned out the file /etc/setup/vim.lst.gz.  Your evidence seems 
to indicate that it is simple corruption rather than tampering.  I am 
pleased to see that.
