setup.exe creates broken shortcuts

setup.exe creates shortcuts for the terminal that when used, Windows complains about missing files. I've narrowed down the problem to line 200 of /setup/

#define TARGET          "/bin/mintty"

needs to be:

#define TARGET          "/bin/mintty.exe"

Windows seems to require the file extension for its shortcut target field
