These two messages are really from the same jigdo-lite run?
This Should Not Happen(tm) :-/

You may be one of the first to download the new testing DVD after a "pause" 
of almost a month, maybe a bug crept into the generation process.

No, don't delete it! If you really decide to try again in a week (or so), 
when new images become available, then use the loop-mounted .iso file as a 
source for your update. You'll save lots of time and bandwidth that way.

There is an md5sum for each package in the .template file, BUT jigdo
automatically verifies all these checksums when it assembles the image. It
would not have output "Successfully created `sarge-i386-1.iso'" if there
had been a checksum mismatch.

IOW: The checksums for the individual files were OK, but the overall
checksum of the image (also stored in the .template) was not. Weird.

I suspect that what you have now is a fully functional and working DVD 
image. There just seems to have been a minor glitch during the creation of 
the .jigdo/.template files.
