Not rebooting when asked to is asking for problems.  Just because it seems
to work sometimes does not mean you will have success every time.  On the
other hand, if you already have all cygwin processes stopped before
running setup.exe, you will not need to reboot.

One other thing to do would be to attach the output of 'cygcheck -svr' as
a text attachment, as directed here:

Huh?  The problem here isn't slow release times (I posted readline 5.2.4
within 3 days of when it was released upstream).  Rather, it is the length
of time you let elapse before upgrading, and how many versions you missed
in between.
