I think I have the patch but it was in Download I thought and I don't think it 
is that it won't update zlib (although you might be seeing a different problem) 
but I think it is not updating whatever is the last package I select for update 
and then only if I am doing an install from local directory - it seems to 
download it and install from the internet just fine - I've been trying to debug 
it but my skills are beginner at best.

The other couple of things I've noticed are cosmetic and personal and 
definitely not show stoppers although I really don't like that if I select the 
Test option that all the packages that don't have a test show up as uninstall 
as opposed to keep.  Also cosmetically speaking I think if I am doing an 
Install from Local directory and the Source file does not exist I should not 
have and option for the Source to be installed.
