The problem is I don't know what caused the upload to be so slow.
It's not my connection as I can download up to 2 MB/s and upload up to 110
KB/s as well.
There was a lot of small files (signature files - ASC, MD5).
Maybe the machine was not in good shape yesterday. I think
the ping was not very good.
Anyway, it's done now...

I just reproduced it (even if I was sure what was going on after looking at
the installer code).
Even if you did not used the standard way of installing a software on
Windows (where each software is usually installed in its own (sub)
directory), you're not the one to blame.

It's clearly a major, blocker bug of the installer.

I'm already working on a fix for this.
Hopefully my Windows VM can handle snapshots, so when it trashes everything,
I can easily rollback... :)
