test versions?
That's where the bugger is, then! :)

Of course, I used "official" setup.exe from site, no cvs versions or anything of that kind, although it seems I should. Indeed, I was playing around with library packages (clicking them off even though I knew package 'xyz' will need the lib, and got no warnings at all).
Please point me to the test build of setup.exe if possible. And maybe even upgrade the setup.exe from site, so that people that do a virgin cygwin install will not have to use an old version of setup.
