    When installing via Cygwin Setup, the setup.exe crashes seemingly randomly,
    heres the first 3 occasions and the files it crashed on

    1st was  --  /usr/local/include/gif_lib.h
    2nd was  --  /opt/gnome/doc/control-center-single-0.3/README
    3rd was  --  /opt/gnome/doc/control-center-single-0.3/README

    the folowing 4 times i tried it, the files were different again.

    i have tried a direct install form the internet, i have tried a download to local, then install from local, I have tried a FULL install, and a minimal install (selecting packages myself obviously) and theres always somthing that crashes it..

    I have the latest cygwin setup.exe

        Don't install the following packages:
        {
        startgnome
        libaccplet(something like that)
        scrollkeeper
        [Nothing in gnome-contrib]
        controlcenter
        xmms-themes
        gtk theme switcher
        }
        If it still crashes, see what package it crashed on and don't choose it next time. It was difficult for me, I went in a choose packages-install-crash loop for at least 50 times. Hope this helps.
