It seems that does load balancing and not all
servers are in sync. I have repeatedly downloaded:
And there seem to be 2 versions around, one from February 27 and
one from March 06.

I have a shell script that connects to the ftp via netcat and
compares the age of the file to a local copy. If the local
copy is outdated a fetch is started.

Nice idea to safe traffic, but useless if you get the same
outdated file, because servers are not in sync.
