Re: setup change this year?

My first impression is that setup is doing the md5 checks without telling me that it is, but I can't be sure.  My main confusion stems from the fact that there hasn't been any changes in the setup program since last October(ish) - I'm using version 2.416.

Sounds like a local network problem if you're actually just using a local 
mirror and not just using it in addition to other mirrors on the Internet.
That's just a WAG though.  Perhaps you want to visit:


You can pull down 2.418 (really just adds resizable controls) and see if
it acts differently.  You can also pull down the debug version of 2.415.
If it acts similarly, it would give you a quick basis to debug from, 
without having to rebuild 2.416.  But if you're really serious about 
finding your problem, building 2.416 as debug locally is probably your
best course of action.
