 After updating setup from version 1.0.3-4 to 1.0.3-6 and restarting the
 computer, the "Setup" shortcut (in Start > OSGeo4W) raises the error
 dialog (attached):

  Windows cannot find 'osgeo4w-setup.work.exe'. Make sure you typed the
 name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start
 button, and then click Search.


 Inspecting the properties for this shortcut shows that it references
 C:\gnu\OSGeo4W\bin\setup.bat which is a UNIX (not DOS line-ending) file:
 @copy "%OSGEO4W_ROOT%\bin\osgeo4w-setup.exe" "%OSGEO4W_ROOT%\bin\osgeo4w-
 @start osgeo4w-setup-work.exe %*

 This is likely related to #45.
