Invoking the "mingw-get source ..." command for a package name which has no matching entry in the repository catalogue does nothing (silent failure). It should emit a diagnostic, indicating that the named package is unknown.

Defect observed with:

$ uname -a
MINGW32_NT-6.0 ... 1.0.17(0.48/3/2) 2011-04-24 23:39 i686 Msys

$ mingw-get --version
mingw-get version 0.5-beta-20120426-1
