No more worries.
T. Weichmann's Octave 2.1.31 from his site
(Šþtom/index.html) installed
painlessly on my Windows ME (Dutch language version). Only thing is that
the installer assumed the program icon in an invalid location (not under
ŠÜProgam FilesŠÜOctaveŠÜbinŠÜ but somewhere in the root of C:). That may be
the error another mailing-list contributor saw flashing by.

BTW Octave 2.1.31 installed just fine besides Octave 2.0.13; Cygwin was
installed in a directory under C:ŠÜProgram FilesŠÜOctave, while my earlier
Cygwin was somewhere else in C:ŠÜProgram FilesŠÜ. Both Octave (and thus
Cygwin) versions run fine, even simultaneously.
