Packages' integrity

Hi,

I just downloaded a complete set of packages.  After downloading them I 
tested to make sure there was no error in the download.  I used:

find . -name "*.gz" -exec gzip -t -v {} \;
find . -name "*.bz2" -exec bzip2 -t -v {} \;

I get the two following errors:

gzip: 
./ftp%3a%2f%2fmirrors.rcn.net%2fmirrors%2fsources.redhat.com%2fcygwin/release/cpio/cpio-2.5-1.tar.gz: 
not in gzip format
ftp%3a%2f%2fmirrors.rcn.net%2fmirrors%2fsources.redhat.com%2fcygwin/release/fortune/fortune-1.8-2.tar.bz2: 
trailing garbage after EOF ignored ok


PS: A warning to those of you who are running Panda Antivirus Platinum: If 
you allow it to check compressed files it will hang on 
fortune-1.8-2.tar.bz2 and grab 99% of your CPU in doing so! (Win2000Sp3)
