 In the past day (Feb. 3-4, 2009) I've re-run C:\gnu\OSGeo4W\bin\osgeo4w-
 setup.exe (using Start > OSGeo4W > Setup) on my setup to add/update
 various packages, and when the program is at "Installing .. setup-1.0.3-6
 .. /bin/osgeo4w-setup.exe" I get a dialog (see also attached):
  '''In-use files detected'''

  Unable to extract /bin/osgeo4w-setup.exe -- the file is in use. Please
 stop all Cygwin processes and select "Retry", or select "Continue" to go
 on anyway (you will need to reboot).


 It seems to me that this is circular logic, as the setup is running and
 trying to update itself from version 1.0.3-4 to 1.0.3-6.

 I've repeated this behaviour on two XPSP3 computers and on a Win2003
