Here's a small oddity. If you make a mistake in cut and paste when
adding a new download site (easy to accidentally include an invisible
leading or trailing space, for example, in netscape), then instead of
complaining that the URL is wrong, setup complains that it can't find
the setup....tar.bz2 file.
E.g. we have a local mirror on our intranet:
http://web/u/mirror/cygwin/ and the user added
" http://web/u/mirror/cygwin/" and got an error complaining about not
being able to find the file /u/mirror/cygwin/setup.tar.bz2.
