Hmm, there are two packages at the mirrors, libexif and libexif10,
libexif includes version 0.6.12 in binary and the source package
contains the correct versioned patch, script and original source
tarball where the old version 0.6.9 includes the old script, patch
and source package.

My local mirror includes the correct entries in setup.ini too,
setup.ini timestamp is 1134043806.

And I see the same setup behaviour.  It installs not the version of the
source package which is defined in setup.ini to be current but the
previous version 0.6.9-1.  Probably a bug ;)
