[R] md5 hash is wrong for 2.6.2 (Windows)

   I've downloaded R-2.6.2-win32.exe (base) from two CRAN sites
http://mirrors.ibiblio.org/pub/mirrors/CRAN/ and
http://lib.stat.cmu.edu/R/CRAN/) and for both of those sites the expected MD5 hash is reported to be:

     ed512872818707f27ca05f08be7363c2 *R-2.6.2-win32.exe
(See, for example, http://lib.stat.cmu.edu/R/CRAN/bin/windows/base/md5sum.txt).

   However, when I compute the MD5 hash (using two different MD5 hash generators) I get

      4acf8298a829c2787b8fe848f866999a *R-2.6.2-win32.exe

Could someone check and confirm that the MD5 sums on the CRAN server are incorrect? (And fix it?) Thanks,


p.s. Given that two CRAN servers have the bad value, I'm guessing it's safe to install. It installed okay is seems to be running fine.
