More specific details:
"Cygwin Setup - Download Incomplete. Try again?"
Cygwin Setup says 320%.
I click on "YES" and am brought to the "Choose Download Site(s)"
window. I click Next (to get to Select Packages), then click Next
This time Window header started at 0%. I did the exact same thing all
previous times, but I don't see how header is going to report > 100%
