RE: Setup Hangs during "Install from Local Directory"

Well, since no-one seems to be able to help me, let me provide a bit more information.  This problem seems to occur when the setup program tries to access a file for writing for which it does not have permission.  I am not sure if it is related, but I have seen similar behaviour when trying to port a Un*x program (leafnode) although I am trying to sort out my Cygwin installation before progressing further and that may be unrelated.  I am wondering however if I have stumbled onto a known bug in the file access in Cygwin?
