Setup in infinite tight loop using 100% cpu resource
Sun Mar 10 23:06:00 GMT 2013

Would using the 'run' command do this so one would not have to start up an instance of a cdm window? 

$ Run $c/cygwin-packages/setup -q -n -D -K  -l C:\cygwin-packages  -R C:\cygwin  -s   -P openssh

I'm assuming that setup.exe is expecting DOS style pathnames and RUN does expect posix type pathnames for the command to run.
