A user in our forum (whirlpool.net.au) is having an issue with a 
particular file that just refuses to download completely.  This is from 
an Akamai server.  Sometimes it eventually downloads if you continue to 
resume (5+ times) according to other users.  But other times it just 
doesn't resume at all - mostly ending with the same "ERROR: 
RTMP_ReadPacket, failed to read RTMP packet header" message.  This is 
happening on the metered-quota server (Akamai).  On the unmetered-quota 
server there are no issues at all (Hostworks).

You can find the full debug log here:


It is ~8MB compressed and expands to ~20MB.
