The run utility has been moved from X-startup-scripts to a new package.

run.exe will start console programs and hide their console. This is useful for 
creating desktop shortcuts to XWin, xterm or using ssh for windows ssh clients.

The X-startup-scripts and X-start-menu-icons packages have been updated to
use the new run package.


To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on the web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your system.  Save it
and run setup, answer the questions and pick up 'run' from the 'Base' category. 
If you've already installed the X-startup-scripts or X-start-menu-icons package
then 'run' will already be selected. Otherwise click on the 'skip' field next to 
'run' until '1.1.5-2' is displayed.

Note that downloads from (aka aren't allowed due
