I was downloading the RedHat AS 3 Beat ISO's.  The first 135 MB ISO was fine,
but the second 500 some MB and 600 some MB ISO's ended up being 1.3GB and 1.4GB
and rendered useless.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Goto the RHN and download a large ISO

Actual Results:  
the large ISO's doubled in size.

Expected Results:  
kept the original size

Kevin, is there a URL which I can use to verify your bug report? Unfortunately I
don't have the time to check the whole RH page for any downloading options, so
please be so kind as to provide all necessary information together with bug reports!

Just found the following location, which leads to 6 ISO-files - will try to
download some of them:

I don't suppose this to be the same files like Kevin used, but if there is a
general problem the download should also fail with one of those...

Even though we've got a fast internet connection in our company the D/L speed is
about 12k/sec => this takes way too long for me to finish :)

The OS for this bug says Win2k, but were you trying this in Linux? If so it
might be the /tmp bug rearing its ugly head again (too lazy to search for it
right now).

As of Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031216
Firebird/0.7+ and Windows Xp Pro , no problem whatsoever downloading .iso files.
