Hi Derek, please let me know if this is excessive cross-posting, I'm new
here and not sure what is copied to what.  I've updated the bug as follows:

Comments 4, 5, 6, 7, 9 above are not duplicates, they refer to something
different, the Windows version requiring contact with external IP's before
successfully installing, which on the face of it is virus like activity.

Two specific IP's are provided in the comments, in my case
which I have no other relationship with, and in Manuel's
case.  Comment 9 provides instructions on how to duplicate the error on a
new machine for anyone's else's independent verification.

Therefore, since this is not a duplicate of the known issue referenced in
Comment 10, perhaps another, higher profile bug report should be opened for
this issue separately?  Surreptitious external IP contact during
installation sounds kind of alarming, doesn't it...?
