- Subject: Setup.exe BUG - uncertain how to resolve.
Whilst searching for the cause of the 'setup shows non-cached package versions
in install-from-local-directory mode' bug, which first appeared in 2.258, I came
across another problem - setup was reading the source package size from the ini
file, but was then using that value as the _installed_ size of the package (not
the size of the istallation tarball, as it actually is). So, I commented out the
erroneous line, and, in some mysterious way, the original bug I was looking for
went away too!
I am very confused by this. Please can someone who knows the setup code better
than me comment on this?
