Hmmm. There's something wrong with their copies then. I've just
created a new one using the PIK on my local mirror and I get 

sledge:~$ ls -al /foo/pseudo-image
-rw-r--r--    1 steve    root     644112448 Dec 22 02:08 /foo/pseudo-image

which still doesn't match your size.

I'd suggest that you do an rsync against the image on the main site,
as there are problems with the mirrored copies. I'd also contact the
admins on those sites to tell them of the error.
