Anyone else experiencing issues related to phttpget when using
freebsd-update?  What I'm finding is that there is just enough delay between
retrieval of the 6.2 and the 6.3 patches; that the upstream firewall closes
the NAT.  Then phttpget attempts to retrieve the 6.3 patch set and just
assumes the session is already open.  Firewall sends a RST back and phttpget
doesn't attempt a new 3-way handshake.  The end result is freebsd-update
then just gives up.

If it helps at all, I'm so far only seeing this happen behind a Cisco ASA

Anybody else seen this and/or have a suggested work around?
