What software did you use to download the Debian distribution tree? As far
as I know there are no identical packages in the binary-i386 and in the
binary-all, but there are just symbolical links from binary-i386 to
binary-all. It is possible that your ftp software doesn't know symbolical
links and instead of making them  it downloaded the files twice - once in
the binary-i386 and once in the binary-all.

This is going to be problem in non-Linux systems as they cannot make any
symbolical links.

It is also possible that you simply counted sizes of those files twice, and
that you _have_ those symbolic links. But I wonder.

I will be very happy if somebody from this list answers to this problem.

All the very best,
Peter
