Re: New setup.exe release candidate - please test


I usually install everything, but always have to unselect two source only packages (setup and gcc-testsuite). Is it possible to remember that they are already installed and not to offer to reinstall them every time?

Version 2.459

- Repair the broken detection of wrongly-sized package files.

- Fix setup keeping open handles to every tarball it installs during a run.

- Fix a miscellany of error-reporting deficiencies.

- Close stdin, to protect against rogue postinstall scripts attempting to
  wait for user input.

Also, this release appears in my testing to fix the hang when a new install-everything setup is attempted, as side-effect of other bugfixes.

Please test - if no regressions are discovered in the next few days, it will be promoted to the release version, accessible from the cygwin.com main page.
