Something definitely busted in this version for me.  I've been using
the same command line to download an offline, partial mirror for more
than 5 years:

setup-x86_64.exe --disable-buggy-antivirus --download --no-desktop
--root "%CD%\Temp" --quiet-mode --categories All --remove-categories
Debug --local-package-dir "%CD%" --site "%MIRROR%"

On a clean directory structure, this now stops executing without
downloading anything:
