This has kind of quieted down, and I am wondering if others are still seeing 
this issue, or if it has resolved itself.

I just upgraded from 27 to 28.0, and made an attempt to download a new copy of 
thunderbird.  For me, nothing has changed, from the download window, it is 
indicated that the download has failed.  This is the actual state things are 
left in:

429 % ls -l thunderbird-24.4.0*
-rw-r--r--   1 jkemp    users          0 Mar 24 20:40 
-rw-r--r--   1 jkemp    users    41827856 Mar 24 20:40 
430 %

Note, in this download, I downloaded to my home directory, vs /tmp .

Also, FWIW, I also did a reboot on my box, it had been up for several months, 
not that that really mattered.

431 % cat /etc/release
