IIRC, if there are two "curr" versions, setup picks the one from the first
setup.ini it encounters. I wonder, if there's a way to create a custom
setup.ini file with the fixed version as "curr", and then ensure that it's
found first, would setup keep it locked?
In any case, I think I can whip up some quick and dirty code to do the
locking in a day or so, but I think that may do more harm than good...
To do this properly, setup should at least give warnings when a dependency
of a locked version is updated. I'll send the patch in the next couple of
days, but we shouldn't release a new version until the dependency checking
is in place.
