Until Cygwin's developers decide the join the rest of the window's 
universe in having an *uninstaller* it will remain "not installed - 
ever" on many people's systems, including mine.  It is completely 
unacceptable that it is happy to install, but that you have to 
*manually* rip it out piece-by-piece if you ever want to uninstall it.
