2.573.2.2 is the version of 'setup.exe', not any of Cygwin's packages.  Each
package has their own version.  This is why we recommend *attaching* the
output of 'cygcehck -s -r -v' to problem reports, so we know what versions
of which packages you have installed.  See:


We highly recommend working with binary mounts as well.
