Okay.  I think we're onto something here.

I initially tried to reproduce this and couldn't, no matter what I
tried.  That was from my local mirror.  I then tried it on "Install from
Internet" mode and was able to reproduce it.  I think this might have to
do with the fact that my local mirror has a copy of the old version,
whereas the mirror you are using may not have one as old as .12 or
whatever your current version is.

Anyway, I will look into it more as I am very interested in finding the
things that make setup a royal pain in the ass for users.
