I fetched only the setup.ini script at the first run.
Then I moved my contrib & latest directories where all the
stuff is in under the new created subdirectory.  The fresh
downloads went into the right places as I expected.

It happens if you:
1. Have tetex-current installed
2. Have already downloaded tetex-test
3. Have choosen radio button 'Exp' & start another download

1. Have tetex-test installed
2. Have already downloaded tetex-current
3. Have choosen radio button 'Curr' & start another download

Tetex gets downloaded again and again and again and again...
(tetex-current now two times for me today;)

The second time the first tetex-beta-20001218-1.tar.gz.tmp got clobbered.

To reproduce, just run setup on a repository tree where all the
packages are already at their place, *every* package gets downloaded
again. (E.g. if you have the current version of all packages installed
and already downloaded the test versions of these packages too, then
just click on the 'test' radio button and you'll see the setup.exe
chooses all the uninstalled test packages and loads them down).

There is no checking whether the package with the correct size is
already there.
