A valid point, but that is absolutely nothing to do with setup.exe, it's a bug in the particular script or app. And best worked round by setting your home dir to something without a space in /etc/passwd.

Then do it manually. It takes no more than a couple of seconds to click and swipe your mouse across the text and hit delete. You're saving yourself only the tiniest amount of effort by not bothering and imposing anti-social costs on others by doing so. Surely you can see that's inconsiderate?
