actually, the last one I tested was Omen's (not that it seems to make much
difference).  It simply wouldn't download.  I didn't spend any time debugging
it - when I first tried that with zmodem some years ago, it was rather
ugly code that didn't port well (that was apparently right after Omen put
out their version, and _that_ didn't work any better, and had to boot that
annoying copyright notice - so I was disinclined to fix it).
