So, how do I make setup.exe reinitialise the offered mirror list?

I don't understand. The mirror list is reloaded from every time setup.exe runs.

Perhaps he is talking about the saved list of mirrors that will be used.
Deleting /etc/setup/last-mirror will clear that.

Well, myproblem originated in the fact(?) that isn't available as a mirror anymore and I thought that was a problem with my cache, but apparently any mirror site manually added has to be added on every setup.exe run. I just thought seup.exe could remember any sites added.

Setup.exe has a problem though. It cannot remember the proxy port and always defaults to 80 regardsless. /etc/setup/last-connection contains the correct information, though.
