All scripts in /etc/postinstall have wrong filetype

After running Cygwin setup to update my Cygwin install, I got a popup error, so I looked in /var/log/setup.log.  (BTW, it would be very helpful for the popup to say "Check /var/log/setup.log" instead of "Check setup.log".)

setup.log said, among other things:

2010/08/16 00:50:22 running: C:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe --norc --noprofile /etc/postinstall/update-info-dir.sh
2010/08/16 00:50:30 can't run /etc/postinstall/update-info-dir.sh: No such file
2010/08/16 00:50:30 running: C:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe --norc --noprofile /etc/postinstall/bash.sh
2010/08/16 00:50:30 can't run /etc/postinstall/bash.sh: No such file
2010/08/16 00:50:30 running: C:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe --norc --noprofile /etc/postinstall/docbook-xml42.sh
2010/08/16 00:50:30 abnormal exit: exit code=1

I looked in C:/cygwin/etc/postinstall.  Every single script there had ".done" appended to its name, eg

bash.sh => bash.sh.done

Hence none of the scripts could be run.

This is on Windows XP SP3, with an AMD64.
I think I downloaded files from ftp://mirror.cs.vt.edu, or possibly ftp.gtlib.gatech.edu .
