Problem with corrupted source code from sourceforge

When I download the source code for matplotlib (the file is matplotlib-0.91.2.tar.gz) from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=80706 I can’t uzip it. Specifically, the command “tar -xzf matplotlib-0.91.2.tar.gz” returns:
gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
I also tried downloaded older versions from sourceforge but with the same result. (The mirror that I downloaded from was optusnet.dl.sourceforge.net.)

Has anyone else had this problem?

Regards,

Paul Milliken

Works for me -- perhaps it is your download client?
