[MPlayer-users] End of stream detection ? broken?

I'm having a trouble with this:

mplayer -dumpstream -dumpfile _40386563_mol.rm \\

(version 1.0pre6) both linux and win32

What happens is that the stream downloads until the very end, when it hangs for
a minute or two, then

input_pnm: read error

scrolls past, occasionally with a percentage.

The save file then grows rapidly without limit until the file system is full.

Using mplayer -ao pcm -aofile .... etc shows exactly the same behaviour.

Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong?
