I can confirm this. We took a snapshot of October 26th
(setup-timestamp: 1098732614), and in that version of setup, none of
the file handles for any of the temp files of the form (where c:\temp
is your temporary package directory) c:\temp\http%.....\package.tar.bz2
is ever released. The system starts page faulting and the number of
handles just grows and grows, and eventually setup dies like this:
