I am dowloading version "1.3.6-6". And just judging by the file-size it bears more hope. 
Did you notice I talked about the "src" package specifically yesterday? The binary of "1.3.6-5" 
did download here too, and install and run fine. It's just the "src" which was too short. On at 
least four mirrors it was only 1.84MB for the src pkg. Now the new version gives me about 
3.7MB for the "src" which is still the smallest "src.tar.bz2" of all releases since "1.3.2-1" - 
"1.3.6", but it is considerablyu bigger than the "1.3.6-5" src pkg @ 1.84MB.
And YES 1.3.6-6 "src" pkg is complete (at least it doesn't fail the "bzip2" test) .
