Thank you for the bug report. I was unable to repeat:

miguel@skybr /cygdrive/c/temp
$ md5sum mysql-5.1.16-beta.tar.gz
fb6fd4d26335245f679572f65c299762 *mysql-5.1.16-beta.tar.gz

MD5: fb6fd4d26335245f679572f65c299762 <- from our download page

I downloaded the file from the below mirror:

[20 Mar 2007 21:39] Sorin Roiban - mysql5.net
> wget http://dev.mysql.com/get/Downloads/MySQL-5.1/mysql-5.1.16-beta.tar.gz/from/http://mirrors....

> md5sum mysql-5.1.16-beta.tar.gz
c39bc3012350b15c95c9db72fbf1fa6c  mysql-5.1.16-beta.tar.gz

> tar -xzvf mysql-5.1.16-beta.tar.gz


gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--crc error
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

It seems that I didn't notice the errors at the end of the extraction, the file was probably corrupted during the download process itself, my apologies.

I downloaded again from the same location and now it validates:

> md5sum mysql-5.1.16-beta.tar.gz
fb6fd4d26335245f679572f65c299762  mysql-5.1.16-beta.tar.gz

Just in case, I did a diff between the two directories resulting from both downloads):

> diff -r mysql-5.1.16-beta mysql-5.1.16-beta2

Binary files mysql-5.1.16-beta/Docs/manual.chm and mysql-5.1.16-beta2/Docs/manual.chm differ

Thank you.
