--- Comment #12 from Colin Percival <cperciva@FreeBSD.org> ---
Don't worry about portsnap vs. freebsd-update -- it's basically the same code.

If HTTP requests are getting mangled that's a very clear sign as to where the
problem is.  A couple questions about that:

1. Where you are running tcpdump, on the system in question or somewhere else
(firewall etc)?

2. Can you run this under ktrace so I can see the data being passed from
phttpget to the kernel?

It's looking like there's either a phttpget bug, a network stack bug, or you
have a glitchy network card.
