setup.exe stalled?

Okay, I noticed two weird things:

1) somethings flaky with the parser.  libncurses5 (for instance) shows up 
in a category called "Base Libs" --- and does not show up in the "Base" or 
"Libs" category.

2) There's no radio button for "Prev".  We got three labels (Prev, Curr, 
Exp) but only two radio buttons.

Other than that it seem to work okay.
