Cygwin itself is actually just DLL, you can select a previous version of it
in setup.exe. That solved our issue with corrupted display of Maven. You
can also install older versions of any package (but not all old versions
ever published will be available to choose from, just a few ones). Anyway,
my suggestion is downgrade Cygwin itself and see if that helps (if not, we
know the problem is elsewhere). All the other packages you can keep at
latest versions.
