Try using <http://live.nightly.webkit.org/files/WebKit-SVN-source.tar.bz2

Nope, that doesn't happen.  The tarball is created separately and then  
renamed into place.  I think the problem is likely to be the caching  
proxy server which is at nightly.webkit.org choking on the 180MB  
file.  I've updated the links to point directly at the web server for  
this large file so hopefully this problem will disappear.

Kind regards,
