	all tested systems show this behaviour
	when downloading a file via http and this file gets send with chunked encoding by the webserver, the chunk messages are saved to the output file. This corrupts the file.
	md5 sum should be : bcd66117948538a31e17504c2c9e942d
	md5 sum IS        : 4c17905706d043e2187752f8c9d085d6

	work around : do not use FreeBSD's ftp(1) to download files via HTTP.
