That sounds very odd. I'd try using your URL fetching code to just stream 
the data to disk, and check from that. Does the data streamed to disk 
differ from when you download via your web browser?

Also, are you using a recent SVN checkout of HSLF? There were some patches 
from Yegor committed fairly recently that should've improved the slide 
ordering detection
