I have seen the same problem. Fetch is corrupting downloads to local 
filesystems. You can try it on an NFS mount or mount your local fs with 
"-o sync".

As i have seen there are n x 32bytes of corrupt chunks in the downloaded 
file. I hope it correlate with something, but have no time to dig 
deeper. Also note cp, scp does not corrupts data so fetch does something
