It works now for me, too.  Thanks!

Btw., the current setup behaviour is somewhat dangerous(?) or
unexpected(?) in one point.

If a package is available in current and in test version and a user
has the test version installed, the default behaviour of setup is
to reinstall the current version.  Shouldn't the default behaviour
in that case keep the already installed test version?
