I've done a little testing, and the only casualty so far seems to be the
bash post install script. If you perform a clean install of Cygwin (x86
or x86_64) and install just the base packages with a test version of
cygwin, then the bash post install script always exits with return code
1. The links '/dev/stdin', '/dev/stdout' and '/dev/stderr' are not created.
This is rectified by either invoking mintty and running the bash post
install script manually, or by running setup again, keeping the test
version of cygwin and getting setup to run the bash post install script.
This problem is not observed when installing cygwin-1.7.32-1; in this
instance the bash post install script runs correctly and the three links
Version numbers are as follows:
cygwin-1.7.33-0.8 (also -0.4; I haven't tried the other test versions)
Tested under Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit.
Hope this is helpful,
