On the 32-bit system cygwin installs that haven't been updated yet 'run.exe' shows:

    $ ls -l /usr/bin/run.exe
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 Administrator None 65053 Jul 24  2013 /usr/bin/run.exe

On a 32-bit system with this latest cygwin 'run.exe' shows:

    $ ls -l /usr/bin/run.exe
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 SYSTEM SYSTEM 66077 Jun  9 13:16 /usr/bin/run.exe

Filesize is different so something has changed there.
