Maybe I am wrong, but things seem a bit strange.

I run setup and choose Exp. In Pending it says that 001001 is currently 
installed and proposes 5.14.4-3. OK I install this 5.14.4-3.

Re-run setup and Curr/Pending re-proposes 001001!

But was setup patched so that when a TEST (Exp) package was installed, 
the next time it does not re-propose the Current? or this works only for 
Cygwin TEST/Curr?
