Strange download corruption

Here`s a strange one. Maybe a bug, or perhaps just a weird web server.

Download one of the photos at

http://www.autogaleria.pl/tapety/lamborghini.php

using Mass Downloader, and it`s corrupt and won`s display. However, download it with Netscape or MS IE and it will display just fine. Any ideas?

I haven`t had this problem with any other web site.

Sorry, that should be "won`t display". Too much work, not enough play.

This web server processes Range requests incorrectly.
We released Mass Downloader 3.0 Beta 1 yesterday,
this new version downloads files from this server well when using one thread.
Could you please test it?
Please use the "Number of threads" parameter set to 1 for all downloads from this server.
Please write us about the result. Thank you.

Best regards,

Downloaded the beta, tested and it works great, thank you for your quick response. Does a new-feature/fix list exist for the new beta?

I`ve never had any problems with Mass Downloader with any other downloads. Thanks for the excellent product.

Regards,
Keith
