w32api-runtime-4.0.2-1 fails during installation with "unable to extract
/pypy-c.exe.stackdump". Clicking Retry causes a repeat of the same message,
and clicking Continue causes setup to hang.

This appears to be due to a stray file "pypy-c.exe.stackdump" at the top
level of the package. Removing this seems to allow a correct installation.
