Recently many filesize problems for emerge

Mark Knecht
Hi,
   I wonder if anyone else has been seeing a lot of mismatches when attempting to emerge lately? I update about once a week, possibly twice a week, and it seems that every time for the last month or two there are always problems like this:

!!! Digest verification failed:
!!! /usr/portage/media-video/libav/ChangeLog
!!! Reason: Filesize does not match recorded size
!!! Got: 5982
!!! Expected: 5777

Today I had five such errors.

   Generally I give it a few days and find it's been cleared up but I don't remember a time in the past 5 or maybe 10 years where I've seen as many of these and I'm not sure where to report them, or whether they are really worth reporting as they all eventually get cleaned up.

Thanks,
Mark

Its a known problem, there is a bug up about it (sorry forget the number).
Apparently various files (like the digest) take a different path, and
aren't being updated due to some
problem with files getting updated without their time stamp changing,
so rsync doesn't update them.

I haven't had it for a few weeks, thought they had it fixed.
