This was a serious thinko on my part.  The setup.exe parser works as it should
rather than the way I thought it did.

To indicate that a package belongs in two categories, you do this:

category: Foo Bar


category: "Foo Bar"

The latter results in a 'Foo Bar' category rather than two separate categories.
I even got this wrong when I explained it to Gerrit Haase.

With luck, I've fixed both setup.ini and the 'upset' program which is used to
generate the setup.ini.

Actually the button was there.  You just couldn't see it.  Why would you
want to go to a Previous version anyway?  Chees.

I figured that by making it invisible, I would stop the "Cygwin 1.3.3 doesn't
display anything when I type 'ls' but when I drop back to 1.3.2 it works fine."
type of "bug reports".  Maybe it wasn't that great an idea.


Anyway, this should be fixed now.  This was a result of my not moving all of the
top controls when I resized the window.  It should be fixed now although this
window is still too big for 640x480 screens.

>Other than that it seem to work okay.

Thanks for checking it.

One thing that I noticed is that if you cycle through the "View"
selections, when you come around to "Category" again, there is nothing
displayed for installation.

I don't suppose that anyone wants to look into this...
