So I see the December scheduled OES patch is out. Tried installing it
on a test box I have, I get a "Wrong Digest" warning, due to a
different checksum than expected during the download.

Anyone else see this? Is Novell aware of the issue?

I've seen stuff like this before and find out Novell pulled the problem
patch and put it out there again, so I'm not installing it until this
issue is cleared up.
