Can't install Cygwin - setup ends with multiple 256 codes

Hi guys,

I've been a user of Cygwin for the last few years, and I find it extremely useful. Yesterday, I wanted to install a new package, but this ended up killing my installation (likely because I had a terminal running as the setup was running).

I tried running the setup again after quitting the terminal, but to no avail, the terminal wouldn't start again. 

I eventually deleted my old c:/cygwin, and ran the setup again. 

This time, it's ending in failure with the log messages copied below. 

I am running the setup as a user with admin privileges on Windows XP.

Help appreciated, like will be harder without cygwin...

Yann
