I was replying to "normal" use of setup, i.e. install in one go.

You lost me here, I don't know what you are doing.

With the graphical interface of setup, in the select packages, I have to 
set View: Full, Search: coreutils, in the New column I expand the 
dropdown and select the test version, if I want the source package I 
select Src? checkbox (Debug is a separate package).

It seems that you are running some script, not what I was expecting.

Do it by hand as I described, then adjust your scrip or whatever you are 
using (apparently you depend on setup.ini, which seems to be out of sync 
in your case).
