No, I'm saying that the "-m" switch should reduce the possibility of
setup doing something unwanted, because it eliminates the possibility of
it switching into ad-hoc mode (where it searches the subdirs for
setup.ini and package files to full depth).

That still doesn't tell me what about your mirror directories triggers
it to not use local mirror mode when not using that switch. If the
directory structure is correct that is in theory impossible since it
tries mirror mode first and only if it doesn't find a useable setup file
that way would it fall back to ad-hoc mode. Please run the commands in
my other replay to David Stacey and tell me the result.
