Maybe you downloaded before official release?  The isos were made
available but were not complete, then they were reuploaded since there
was a file added?  This could be one possibility?



NOTE: A problem was discovered with the DVD images for amd64 and i386
architectures shortly after they were loaded on the FTP distribution
server. Those images have since been replaced and we have allowed
enough time that the newer images should have distributed to all the
FTP servers that carry the release. If you downloaded the amd64 or
i386 DVD images prior to this announcement it would be a good idea to
verify the checksums of the image you downloaded with the checksums
provided as part of this Release Announcement. The only thing wrong
with the images that were replaced is that sysinstall(8) can not be
used to install the pre-built packages on the DVD. Other than that
there is nothing different on the updated images. The bad DVD images
were never available on BitTorrent.
