First off, thanks for testing.
Secondly, this patch has just been committed to HEAD, so testing the HEAD
revision should be fine (for now). The part that might not work on Win9x
is currently "#if 0"'d out, though. If you could update to HEAD, edit
script.cc, change the "#if 0" in line 185 to "#if 1", and test that, I'd
appreciate it. The expected result is that no window is shown at all -
setup should just seem to hang for a bit while it's running postinstall
scripts. You should be able to track its progress by getting a listing of
the /etc/postinstall directory and seeing scripts renamed to ".done".
You might also wish to apply the latest patch I sent
(<http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-apps/2003-03/msg00618.html>) which adds
progress bars and runs postinstall scripts in a different thread.
Thanks again, and sorry for the confusion.
