Cygwin install hanging on post-texmf.sh on Vista

I've managed to successfully install cygwin on Vista without any hangs.
The way to do it is to:

1 - disable UAC
2 - rename cygwin's setup.exe to something else, like foo.exe
3 - run foo.exe as an administrator

It seems Windows Vista Installer detection heuristics kicks in once
setup.exe is started and it somehow interferes with the install.
The way to avoid this is to rename setup.exe to something else which doesn't
have "setup" or "install" in its name.
Hope this helps.
