So I manually copied it back and am trying again.
This time it fails at "Uninstalling x-start-menu-icons" because seq.exe
can't find cygiconv-2.dll. I'm fairly sure I used to have that, so setup
must have deleted it as well.
This time I'm keeping a full list of everything that's in my /bin
directory. Next time anything bombs out I'm going to be able to _prove_
setup deleted it.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
