This is really weird, the cygwin installer didn't appear to install it's
own vi anywhere; that's not supposed to happen, is it? I'll wipe this
installation and try the newsetup.exe, assuming that vi is supposed to be
installed :)

Sorry for the false alarm, I didn't think I had another vi on this system.
I'll try to be more observant next time.
