What makes you think it is downloaded into the IE disk cache?
I don't think it should be -- as AFAIK, it doesn't use IE to download
setup using IE to do its downloading is a bad idea. But, that got me
thinking, so allow me a crazy thought. AFAIK, Cygwin's setup can't use a
HTTPS mirror . Given the desire to move more and more web traffic
onto HTTPS, would an option to download through IE be a cheap way to add
HTTPS support to setup?
 Such as https://mirrorservice.org/sites/sourceware.org/pub/cygwin/
