Here's a possible plan of attack for finding the change in cygwin's
setup that broke wine compatibility:

1) verify that installing gvim fails with current cygwin setup
but succeeds with old cygwin setup *on same snapshot of cygwin repo*
by using -X option and pasting
into the repository field in the cygwin setup,
then installing gvim.   I think current setup will put up
an error dialog halfway through, but old setup will work.

2) learn how to build setup.exe from svn, see 

3) verify that building a setup.exe from September's sources
works, but that building one from today's sources fails

4) binary search

5) profit!
