Right. I thought I'd squashed this problem in setup.exe. Apparently
we need a setup.exe v1.35. Sorry about that.

Yep. I thought I'd fixed this too. It's a problem with parsing the
directory output that setup.exe gets from its mirrors. If it sees
something like ftp://foo.bar.com/pub/cygwin/latest/.. it sometimes
does the wrong thing.
I'll try to fix this in setup 1.35.
