Setup bug? Looping through requisites

First, let me start with gratitude and a complement.  Overall, I
LIKE that speed improvements in setup.  Thanks for all the work
that went into it!

Now, a bug report.

This morning setup when into a loop while checking requisites.

It was start by a batch file that called a windows shortcut with
the following command line
    C:\cygwin\usr\local\bin\setup.exe -R c:\cygwin -n -q -l h:\cygwin\arc

I then started it manually and clicked through the screens.  It worked
OK except for stopping to ask permission needing to add something that
was missing - I think that it was <libevtlog0>.

Here is what it downloaded

Since then I've run the shortcut again and it worked fine.  Of course,
nothing needed to be updated.

I've attached <setup.log full> and, in <setup.log.last3>, the last 3
updates as listed in <setup.log>.  I apologize for not having thought
to save <setup.log> before running setup again.

Thanks again,

- Barry
