Hi Ken,
I just noted the same error with 2.772 when downloading from my site
that has only setup.ini and not setup.bz2.
Adding the setup.bz2 bypassed the crash, but crash on missing 
setup.bz2.sig ; usually I do not see it as I use setup -X that skips the 
signature check.

BLODA is still a possibility, I have Symantec installed; or there is 
subtle bug handling the missing files on the website
