And I'll third it.  My shop box spent about 12 hours today trying to 
get that file, failing in most cases from an md5sum error in a packet 
header someplace, and eventually I ctl-c'd it.  Then I added that 
file to the exclude statement, but then yum apparently couldn't call 
home anymore.  Ping times to downloads.fedora.com were in the 
millisecond range all during this time so I fail to see where the 
errors were being generated.  ifconfig's reports were sparkling clean 
of any error.
