I can confirm that the result that you all got is the correct one,
and I just corrected it on the web page.

I'm puzzled how this might have happened. It's clearly not a typo,
since I copy-pasted the md5sum from the shell output to the text
editor. In the subversion source of the page, it was already
incorrect, so some bit loss must have occurred in the editor, or
the cut-n-paste - which in itself is frightening.
