Found case with "Download incomplete / try again"

It does not look like a download issue. I tried downloading whole GNOME 
several times on several computers and each time setup failed with the 
same error. I also tried deleting all downloaded from CygwinPorts 
(sunsite) files.

After some experimenting it looks like their configuration breaks 
something inside setup.exe. The error is not MD5 related (but there is 
one other component with invalid MD5). It looks more like a bug in 
handling source only components.
