MD5s of setup.exe on mirrors.
Fri May 11 19:59:00 GMT 2007

Some hours ago I noticed something strange: 

Cygwin mirrors have in their toplevel a setup.exe and an md5.sum. The
m5sum is

  ae1944f528338033bab3b4710d5bd736  setup.bz2
  b31ddcef84f25919a5d3184167b4a90d  setup.exe
  0503889504b7ff0b23e65586a522b3ad  setup.ini

whereas the setup.exe has actually the md5sum:


I checked that for and
and some others.

The setup.exe link from

and has the "right" md5sum (that given in md5.sum)


Both file version have the same length and differ only in byte 500.

  cmp -l setup.exe  setup.exe.3.

I'd be interested to hear why that is so -- and also suggest to
correct md5.sum or setup.exe at the master site.
