Oops, uploaded the wrong copy.  Try now.

I don't change it if it already exists.  You have to delete the files
if you want setup to build new ones.

But you have to hard-code the path to bash, and that shows up in
bash's messages:

	bin\bash: foo bar grill

No, because updating that tar file would override any local changes
the user may have made to those files.  Setup will only create
new files, it won't replace existing ones.
