I suspect that the files were giving redirects (302) to 
error pages, isn't it?
There is no much things to do, except setting reasonnable 
transfer rate limits (like 10KB/s) and simultaneous 
connections limits (1 or 2 sockets simultaneously)

Checksuming is impossible with http (there are no 
such "built-in" features), even if it can be acheived with 
etag (but very few servers are using it)
