I've never installed any Cygwin stuff from anything other than 
setup.exe. The Cygwin mirror I typically use is Oddly enough, looking at it now, I see 
Current as 2.1-1 and "new" as 1.3-1. Huh? OK... Installing "new"...

Well now I do have 1.3-1 and I have an /etc/bash_completion.d/perl, but 
it behaves the same... :-(
