Yuck.  I went through this, too.  It appeared to me that there were a
large number (a dozen? I no longer remember) of packages uploaded more
than once, without bumping the version, and if you were so fortunate
as to get the earlier rather than the later copy, setup won't have
updated to the later.

It might be easier to blow away your local package directory than
to run setup over and over, each time identifying one more package
to rename/delete.

Is there a snapshot that has this fixed?
