Is this the only postinstall script that gives you problems?  What 
happens if you rename it to so that setup won't 
keep trying to run it.  Do the remaining scripts run OK?  If not, please 
take a look at /var/log/setup.log.full to see if you can tell why 
they're failing.

Very strange.

Please follow the problem-reporting guidelines at, including the part about attaching 
cygcheck output:

"Run cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck.out and include that file *as an 
attachment* in your report. Please do not compress or otherwise encode 
the output. Just attach it as a straight text file so that it can be 
easily viewed."
