Re: setup for 1.7 fails with Japanese characters in download

My base os is Japanese OEM Windows XP.

I've only used the standard c:\cygwin-packages directory, so have not had any problems. But, to confirm Gernot's report, I created a  C:\japanese_dirname日本語名 directory and tried to download a package into it.  It fails.

setup reports the following type of message:

No such file or directory: C:\japanese_dirname日本語名/http%3...../release-2/..bzip_filename

Although I think comments regarding "setup" may need to be sent to some setup mailing list??
