Hm, it's possible you've experienced one of the uncorrupted, but
still corrupt, Oaiss patches.  The problem is apparently occurring
when the patch is downloaded with Netscape.  Try with a ftp
program (assuming the patches are availible via ftp), or with
Internet Explorer.  Or, if aren't using Netscape, just try a
different program, or redownload it.
