That looks bad.

You probably should re-download the file, even if you are only missing
part of the regression test.  You might want to take a look at
downloading it with something like wget however (assuming that you are
downloading on some sort of a *nix box).  wget will resume partial
downloads when called with the -c flag.  It's a life saver over crappy
links.

Six hours is a long time.  Even over a modem.  Perhaps you should try
a different mirror.
