what is happening is this:
- setup-x86 checks your installed packages
- bash is found and it is the last one
- nothing is downloaded

If you want to test differently try adding

-R c:\cygwin-test

this will fake an empty installation in a
different root.
However this will cause bash and all Base
and their dependency to be downloaded

I just get :
