Perhaps it has to do with the design of upset being incremental, i.e.
taking the current setup-2.ini as input and applying updates to it
rather than generating it from whole each time.  It might be confused
upon not seeing a "requires:" at all in the .hint and so it leaves the
existing "requires:" in the .ini unchanged.  If this is the case then
listing an explicit empty "requires:" in the .hint would probably work
around it.  If true then it sounds like more of a bug to fix than
something we want to kludge around.
