Presence of cygwin64 elements in an existing Cygwin 32 install after updating




Some Cygwin programs are failing even after reboots, re-installing the
faulty program, and the customary automatic rebasing (e.g. 'dig', Line
1 below) after a recent update:

Some cygwin64 packages were installed (see line 17 below (even though
I am running *32* bit cygwin, installed using setup-*x86*.exe:

After the existing setup warned me that there was a newer one, I
downloaded this one before continuing with the update.

    08/23/2017  04:10 PM           871,955 setup-x86.exe

    9afd6a83bbb7dbb55805ab113e1e618e *setup-x86.exe

Lines 1 - 9: After the update I noticed that 'dig' wasn't working
properly (even after a reboot, and a reinstall of the bind-utils
package, and the automatic rebase invoked by 'setup'.)

Lines 12 - 17: cygcheck showed the following note about a missing (64
bit?) cygwin DLL.

Line 17 especially, why is there an 'x86_64' reference on a cygwin 32
bit install?

Lines 20 - 29 show a number of cygwin64 references, 108 to be exact on Line 29:

Line 33 is additional evidence that this is the 32 bit setup program:

Lines 36 - 44 show more info about the setup.ini file.


     1    dig +short -x 127.0.0.1
     2          0 [main] dig (4552) C:\cygwin\bin\dig.exe: *** fatal
error - cygheap base mismatch detected - 0x612E8408/0xBA8408.
     3    This problem is probably due to using incompatible versions
of the cygwin DLL.
     4    Search for cygwin1.dll using the Windows Start->Find/Search facility
     5    and delete all but the most recent version.  The most recent
version *should*
     6    reside in x:\cygwin\bin, where 'x' is the drive on which you have
     7    installed the cygwin distribution.  Rebooting is also suggested if you
     8    are unable to find another cygwin DLL.

Interested in how to remove the cygwin64 components from this cygwin
32 bit system so that failing Cygwin programs work properly.

Thanks!
