Thanks for accepting the patch.

Unfortunately I missed a detail: The postinstall script does not 
preserve the x-permission of Cygwin.bat. This is required if run from 
explorer or with 'cygstart /Cygwin.bat'.

Possible fix attached. Alternatively remove the 'touch' command and the 
x-permission from etc/defaults/etc/profile.
