Strange behavior of cygwin setup preferences

Thu May 14 00:39:00 GMT 2009

When I have a fresh new installed OS, say XP, and the first time to 
install cygwin using cygwin setup utility, I can see a lot of 
components. After the first installation, however it's completed 
installed or be canceled, Then I launch the setup again, most components 
are gone.

It looks like this, the setup remembered which components I've selected, 
and saved my selection to the win32 registry or somewhere, whatever, I 
don't know where it saved and I can't find it.

Is there any command line option to force the setup.exe consider it's 
the first to install?
