This is not a bug.  You can review the mail list archive if you're interested
in the details of this change.  If the new format bothers you, ignore the 
download directly completely.  It's an implementation detail of setup which 
you don't need to ever inspect.  It may change to your annoyance again in 
the future.  If that thought is disturbing to you, get in the habit now of
ignoring this directory.
