 I presume you knew only in retrospect, after downloading the version
that passed the "pkunzip -t" that it was 600K.  It is quite common for
sites (e.g. Planet Microchip) to quote the filesize it *used* to be
before the last version (bug-fix and bloat).

 Downloaded from an FTP site, so I believed the FTP directory's
filesize.  The initial file failed pkunzip -t, btw.  A second download
resulted in 651804 bytes, which works.
