We are experience same problems with corrupted data files after download. We are using md 2.6.398 on a win2k machine.

Every day we download 98 gz files with a file size between 5mb to 120 mb. - And after the upgrade we have experienced that 3-5 files are having crc-error when we try to extract the data. If we then download the file once more everything is fine.

- When will the fix be available, alternatively can we download the previous version of MD, it seemed to work without file corruptions.

Best Regards
