Bug Description

Binary package hint: apt-p2p


I tried to run an update of my system with apt-p2p installed. Apparently, the Ubuntu servers where temporary quite busy, and the download of packages failed partially. In particular, there was one package (openoffice-base-core) which could not be installed by Synaptic. Synaptic reported an 'inconsistent file length' on that package, even long after the download servers where working properly. I managed to fix that issue by digging in /var/cache/apt-p2p/cache/ and removing manually the openoffice-base-core package there, as well as in /var/cache/apt/archives.

The file in /var/cache/apt-p2p/cache/ has a size of 0, so it would be great if apt-p2p could keep the integrity of its cache even in the face of incorrect downloads.
