Sorry if I had been unclear: I had a .exe file where there should have
been a symlink.  I was not trying to imply that Cygwin shipped with it.

It's been a while since I had that problem.  As I said, I fixed the
links by hand and then re-created the formats (by looking through the
post-install scripts and then running the appropriate commands).  All
has been well ever since and the update from one TeXlive version to the
next has not been making any problems.
