The download still croaked around the 4GB mark, but get_iplayer caught the error and rolled over to the second CDN and rtmpdump resumed the download from where it left off.  OTOH, I didn't get around to downloading until the single version with commentary was posted, replacing the 2 versions available earlier yesterday.  Those earlier versions may not have been available on both CDNs, so there was nowhere to go when it died 4 GB.  No idea what the real problem is at 4GB. As Chris said, it does have the strong whiff of 32-bit overflow in some sort of accumulator value, but that's for another day.

2.4 was able to download the new/final ceremonies just fine.

But when I fed it the PID of the "no commentary" version, it was unable to grab the whole thing, possibly for the reasons you stated.

I really wish I'd managed to grab that in HD while it was still available.....  (*extremely sad face*)
