Hmm - seems like *that* aspect of the setup.hint file was broken as well.
Either wait a few hours for the new setup.ini to be made and propagate to
mirrors, or manually extract cygpcre.dll from the old pcre package, and put
it in your bin directory.
I don't understand why your shell won't start - unless perhaps you aren't
using bash. If so, neither bash nor sh requires cygpcre.dll. Either that, or
disabling any profile/rc which invokes a pcre-dependent app should allow you
to get running again.
