Now verified. Same problem exists for package gdal15 and probably others.

The solution, as indicated in ticket #101, is to repack the archives 
using msys tar & bzip2 and update the setup.ini md5 sums accordingly.

Jeff I advise you wait a bit until the server files are updated.

Frank: I am assuming you will regenerate the packages?
