Yes, I am *pleased* to report that it solved *two* 
issues for me! :-)

1. Setup no longer crashes.
2. I no longer get the pesky "INVALID PACKAGE: 
file://E:\Downloads\cygwin_1_7_14-2/ - Size mismatch: 
Ini-file: 0 != On-disk: 4096" when downloading to my 
RAID 1 volume (nor on my VHD volume)!

Initially, I did experience some strange behavior 
(retry failures, etc.) on one mirror, but not on 
another I tried; probably attributable to re-sync 
in-process on the problematic mirror.

Nice work and thank you Christopher!

Kind regards,
