This only happened while downloading from the Internet. I happened to be
looking at the output of dmesg for some other reason, and it was full of
hw tcp v4 cksum failed
Looks like I have weird hardware (hw?) or there's a bug or something in the
TCP code. More likely a misconfiguration or a hardware error if nobody else
has experienced this.
Thanks everyone for your replies.
