Umm, not quite. The cached version is only used if the mirror list is not
available -- otherwise it's simply overwritten.
The stale mirror check happens only for the mirrors in
/etc/setup/last-mirror (i.e., those you install stuff from). If one of
the currently *selected* mirrors is not in the freshly downloaded (or
cached) mirrors.lst, setup issues a warning.
