  Arg.  And you'll get trouble trying to reinstall it, because your old
previously downloaded 4.3.4-3 packages now won't match the md5sum of the
silently-upgraded-in-place packages listed in the current version of setup.ini.

  Also, it seems that it's no longer possible to select the "Retrieve"
(meaning re-download) option for those packages.

  You may have to blow away that part of your package dir; doing so allowed me
to redownload 4.3.4-3 and reinstall it successfully, at any rate.
