Hi Ulrich,

I used curl(1) and wget(1) to retrieve this URL.  Both gave a 544,493 B
file that was gzip'd.  gunzip-ing it gave a bigger tar file.  Perhaps
your downloader is seeing the above Content-Encoding and trying to be
helpful by decompressing it for you, but not altering the saved file

Cheers, Ralph.
