Also ensure no processes using Cygwin are running, before starting a freshly
downloaded https://cygwin.com/setup-x86_64.exe, and wait until setup has
finished all processing and exited, before using any Cygwin programs:
otherwise autorebase and other postprocessing may not work properly.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
