bug in Win32 Cygwin setup.exe

In order to install Cygwin, I must use either the IE5 settings or a
proxy.  Upon running the setup.exe program, if I click on "Use IE5
settings" first, then I have no problem;  it finds the mirrors, and I'm
golden.  If I click on "Direct Connection" and it fails, I click "Back",
and then click on "Use IE5 settings", then it does not find the mirrors,
and even when I add them manually, it won't find the appropriate setup
files.  This is a bug.
