I had the same problem when I used WinZip to expand and install a
Cygwin package from an archive.  Using any non-Cygwin tool to do this
will cause such a problem since those tools don't understand Cygwin
mount points and will happily treat /bin and /usr/bin as two distinct
folders/directories.  Maybe someone could add a
"DO_NOT_EXPAND_WITH_WINZIP.README" file to the distribution to warn
about this problem.
