I might try that but it's not a very big issue. I had just
over 10 build failures out of > 1800 and only a proportion
of those 10 were due to corrupt files being downloaded. I
switch to manual download for those few. 

Some sites require confirmation of accepting licence before
download starts, some others have been parked and there is
a html page to this effect along with advertising, but the
worst are where the bogus file is the exact same length and
wastes my download allowance.
