    Thanks - I tried twice already, and got same result. BTW it would be good to
    have an anon ftp download facility ( perhaps), then I
    could do it server-to-server and not run the (small) risk of corruption of
    http:// to local computer then ftp to server. Or is there another way round

    Other factor may be I just used CPAN to download various modules,
    spamassassin, and it downloaded a mass of modules & updates as dependencies.
    Maybe these new CPAN modules are fussier?

    Regards, Oliver.

    This is the first report I've heard of such problems - I would venture
    that the file got corrupted somewhere on the way and you should simply
    try again.
