Comment 1 Matěj Cepl 2009-04-29 18:40:03 EDT
Weird, cannot reproduce here. I get two identical files:

[matej@viklef tmp]$ ls -l anaconda.bug.495290*
-rw-rw-r--. 1 matej matej 181517 30. dub 00.36 anaconda.bug.495290-firefox.tar.gz
-rw-rw-r--. 1 matej matej 181517 30. dub 00.37 anaconda.bug.495290.tar.gz
[matej@viklef tmp]$ md5sum anaconda.bug.495290*
6642bd4fe6442057e7d0178639625d82  anaconda.bug.495290-firefox.tar.gz
6642bd4fe6442057e7d0178639625d82  anaconda.bug.495290.tar.gz
[matej@viklef tmp]$ gzip --test --verbose anaconda.bug.495290*
anaconda.bug.495290-firefox.tar.gz:	 OK
anaconda.bug.495290.tar.gz:	 OK
[matej@viklef tmp]$ 

Is there anything non-standard with your configuration? Plugins (can you reproduce it with -safe-mode)? Some network configuration (e.g., proxies)?
Comment 2 Lubomir Rintel 2009-04-30 00:55:57 EDT
I did not manage to reproduce this today, with the following revisions:


Which seem to be the same versions I reported against. I conclude this could have been a server side problem. I've tried this multiple times with the same faulty results before and marek even reproduced this on ancient fc8 firefox as well.

Sorry for bothering you; closing.
