We do not use MD5 checksums for the internal extensions like presenter 
console or minimizer.  Their current version is always used.

As for the downloaded extension.  I see this problem as an inconvenience 
at best.  For a new extension you have to update the main/extensions.lst 
file anyway, so that the new MD5 sum is used.
If you do a clean build then everything is fine.
The described problem occurs only if one tries to save time by reusing 
previously downloaded extensions.

But I agree that a MD5 mismatch should be handled more gracefully.  That 
is something that should be fixed after the 3.4 release.
