Could it be that this is an unintended consequence of SourceForge's new 
policy when they decided, for transparency towards the community, to 
avoid mirrors that had not been asked for?

It seems clear that was definitely 
to be kept (or, while at it, we could have it relocated to or something else like

At times, the first download fails since the .gz file is uncompressed 
during download. So basically you download file.tar.gz and what you get 
is a file named "file.tar.gz" but with the contents of "file.tar" (and 
thus a different md5sum). If someone wants to hack the Perl file or file 
this in an issue it would be perfect. But the fallback always worked, so 
this hasn't been high priority.
