Btw currently setup exits *silently* if something is wrong with the
MD5 sum when doing local install. It exits before the chooser is shown.
I think this is quite nasty and can confuse the user alot. Maybe this is
good to be fixed before the final release is out. Maybe there are other
places when setup exits without notification too.
