Thanks for taking a look at this David. First thing though: vz. 2.162 isn't
current. Did you get this from the link to my own site that I posted a week or
so ago? If so I have to apologize; I neglected to pull that down when
subsequent snapshots became available (i just pulled it now). Current build
from HEAD of cvs shows vz. 2.169.

I'm not seeing anything like this whatsoever. Sounds extremely bizzarre, as a
WAG is it maybe old video drivers?

Yep, this I see. I read Rob's explanation and FWICT this isn't the intended
behavior overall, but there's some question as to where it should be dealt with.

Yeah, I agree, and again I believe the above comment applies. Rob, speaking
from a position of relative ignorance on this particular issue, I don't think we
should rely on this being handled solely in setup.ini if it's possible to do so
in setup.exe itself, at least as a second line of defense. Invariably something
will get into setup.ini not-quite-right, and setup will start uninstalling
people's mans, etc.

Again I see nothing remotely like this (nor did I notice anything like it in
older builds for that matter). Which OS are you on?
BTW: Setup.exe isn't *all* mine ;-). Only the bug-free parts; I don't know
who's sneaking those bugs in there ;-).
