It's a bug.  I think I stumbled on it before, but clearly I forgot or
something.  The issue is that urlgrabber tries to fetch from the end
of the local file to the end of the remote file, which is
zero-length.  IIRC, that is (sadly) not legal in HTTP.  I'll look into
it.  I'm currently doing a bunch of stuff in urlgrabber and expect a
new release Real Soon Now.  This will be fixed one way or the other.

Thanks for reminding me.
