Hi ---

It turns out that there was a nondeterministic error that cropped up  
occasionally on the planet server that would occasionally cause this  
problem with very large packages like allegro.plt. I've found and  
fixed it. (If anyone has gotten this error message with _any_ planet  
package recently and especially with large planet packages, the bug I  
just fixed was probably the culprit.) There's no need to do anything  
to get this fix; it was server-side only, so things ought to just  
work for everyone.

I've also fixed the error message so that if this happens again for  
whatever reason, DrScheme will report that it got a truncated package  
rather than signaling an inflate error. That change has been released  
into SVN.
