Then I am confused.  I just updated my installation to all current packages 
(gcc-2.95.2-6 included) and made a change to cinstall. Since I am trying to 
understand what Earnie told me I am using version without Corinna's change 
for download.cc replacing stat with get_file_size.

I made a change to cinstall and recompiled and now (once again) when I 
download something it tells me the downloaded size was 3 bytes vs whatever 
was truly expected.  Yet Earnies message references 2.95.2-6 as being a 
compatible version.  What am I doing wrong - is there a flag I left out.  

I plan to put in Corinna's change I am simply trying to understand and what 
Earnie explained to me and learn from this.

Tnanks for the help.
