Never had to chmod -x setup in my download, check, launch script 
until now - it used to just check it was -x and complain if not, 
which it did this time, pre-fix! 
Did not require that on my last (wget -N) download of the current 
setup release, but now does. 
Consistent across directories, Cygwin, and Windows DACLs. 
Could be Windows, Cygwin, or wget change - not worried about cause.
