did you make a note about the message? it would save us a lot of time 
when we knew which lib it wanted.

weird. you can take a look at what the KEEP/butch_download_template.txt does

in general it gets a list of urls from the pkg, and then tries to dl 
them with wget --retries=5

so in the case that one of the urls is broken, it would try up to 5 
times to download it before switching to the next url. note that 
downloads-in-progress are saved to $filename.wip and only after a 
successful download renamed to $filename.

in any case: please provide the names of the packages which made trouble.

in general stuff that works by magic is not in the spirit of sabotage. 
we try to deliver sound solutions that are reproducible.
