Setup 2.57 woes...

Setup 2.57 seems to have a problem locating the existing tarballs, and is
always offering for download all files. This obviously makes it very
difficult to determine what is truly new.

This was working very nicely with the previous version.

The download directory is correct, been the same directory that setup is
downloaded to. For some reasons it, just can't see the files even though
they are right there in the same directory.

I only use setup for download, since setup's install (or at least earlier
versions) always insists on trampling over my /bin /usr/bin mounts etc, but
that's another story. Manual installs are trivial however.

Has it become mandatory to use setup for install also?
