Perhaps (for next time) upload to a "staging" area (I believe cgf has
in the past mentioned using the home directories on sourceware), then
when the upload is complete, move the files to the appropriate
directory? This would avoid the problems being reported with
setup.exe I believe.
Just my 2 cents.
