It doesn't help, but I have d/l it with no problems, no errors and a 
clean sound. I do get Readpacket errors but the d/l invariably resumes 
and I have not noticed a jump or corruption from the interruption 
(though there surely must be as I understand frames are missing). I am 
using v2.82 under Mint 11. I can up the copy of Zeller 09/07/2012 if 
your problem persists - I've never heard of him (don't listen to Radio 
Cumbria) but am listening now!
