Re: Is setup.exe _supposed_ to delete the cygwin dll before attempting to run shell scripts?

This is more likely to be the culprit -- postinstall scripts are run after
all the package files were installed. Unfortunately, preremove script
dependencies aren't easily computed from regular package dependencies --
this has been discussed on cygwin-apps some time ago.
Couldn't this be trivially solved by running all preremove scripts in a
batch, before actually beginning to delete files?
Any flaw to that reasoning?
I guess I should now go and see how hard that would be to make happen...
