This is due to a 0-length file used for an empty package.  As far as I
know, this has already been fixed on, and should propagate
to the mirrors soon.  You might want to go and physically delete the
offending file from your system, as well as clear the IE cache, to pick up
the fixed version.

FWIW, a newer setup snapshot (see <>)
did not crash in this situation.
