Possible SETUP.EXE bug - failed download reports wrong percent completion

I had my recent download fail part-way through a few times.  Each time
it went back to the "select FTP/HTTP" download host screen.

I just noticed that the window heading now says, "221% - Cygwin Setup"
(and increasing).  I'm guessing that some counter is not being reset
when this condition occurs.  I.e. if my previous download had obtained
75% before it failed, and the next one obtained 75% before it failed,
the new one would start with 150% downloaded and grow from there.  The
line showing incremental download progress, in the form:

    44 % (71000K/158994K) 288.1 kB/s

seems to have correct %.  I'm guessing that's the # that should be in
the window header.
