Weirdest shit in the world. Privoxy is dumping temporary failure
messages mid-stream into the binaries, yet keeping the sizes exactly
the same. Perhaps this was the source of the original mysterious
binary corruption that sent me on this quest oh so long ago.
Unfortunately then I was in a hurry and just deleted the file without
thinking :)

So even so, it's unsettling.. You download some app, iso, video, or
whatever via Privoxy and it kindly tells you there's a temporary
failure mid-binary stream. How nice of it.
