[Distutils] setuptools download error?

My setuptools-using colleagues have problems with downloading 
setuptools.  Initially I suspected the 0.6c12-r12345something releases, 
that old release numbers were disappearing. But that's apparently not 
the case, even though having such version numbers downloaded by a 
standard buildout bootstrap worries me a bit.

I tried using "wget" to download one such release and it also failed. It 
would download 95% of the file and then stall...

Pinning setuptools to 06c11 (the latest stable) worked like a charm: 
that one downloaded just fine (or was already available in the cache, 

Is there something wrong with the peak server? Should I fix something on 
our end? (I'm using distribute myself, so I don't have this problem).
