Ok, I tried downloading the file through another internet access and everything
went fine. Though with my internet access it failed three times.
My own connexion isn't very fast so maybe that's the problem, but the 17.6 is as
big as the 17.4 and it downloaded fine.

Well, another computer science mystery that'll go to the X-Files cold cases ;)

Sorry for the noise !
