Ok, I'm only going to say this once.... (famous last words?) .... and
I'm saying it in the hope that bug reporting behaviour for setup.exe
will change. IOW I won't harp on this, although I may repeat from time
to time for newcomers.

1) If something is broken, drop a note off to the list. I don't bite
2) Me-toos when someone else sends in a note are only useful for the 1st
me-too. (And then only if the poster said "I think this is just me -
anyone else seeing it?". If you are reading mail oldest first, do not
reply with a me too, until you've seen that there have been no

I'm saying this now, because until recently we've not had a lot of
dev-conversation on setup.exe on this list, so the ground rules haven't
been clear.

Norman, your message was ok, because it was the first me-too :}, so take
this as a general email, not one targeted at you!
