Ok, I understand, and, yes, it's also about setup.exe. That would be
true if the package was marked as 'a test package', aka those marked
'[test]' in setup.ini, but what if they were not? From my example bash
4.2 is not marked as [test] (I've changed 'installed.db' file
accordingly), yet setup(64) downgrades it to 4.1
Why not use two conditions instead of just one? Say, 'if package is
more recent, and not marked as [test], then do not downgrade (keep)'.
That is the way it works for non-test packages.
I'm not sure what mirror you're using but on mirror.mcs.anl.gov, bash
4.1.11 is the only version available for x64.
