Checked today morning again. This mirror is also slow today. The real problem 
is that sourceforge has reduced the number of mirrors to 4  and 2 of them 
only have very limited bandwith. After switching the mirror I've done a fresh 
install of cygwin and kde 3.1.4 on a new win2000 laptop without problems. 

The only issue i detected is that is required to run rebaseall after 
installation like mentioned in installation hints on
