I just uploaded another new setup-1.7.exe (2.625) to
http://cygwin.com/setup-1.7.exe, which contains the following changes
and bug fixes:

- Fix a bug which resulted in the inability to access files on
  systems which have case-sensitivity switched on.

- Make sure there's always a /usr/bin and a /usr/lib mount point,
  however weird an already available /etc/fstab file looks like.

- Create real hardlinks, rather than copying files, if a file is
  hardlinked in a package archive.

- Make sure .exe files always have execute permissions after installation.

- When running postinstall scripts, start bash so that it ignores any
  system or user profiles.

- An unclear text in a dialog box is changed dynamically to make more
  clear what's it all about.

Please replace your local version of setup-1.7.exe with this one.
