I had the same problem trying to install Sun Studio last week. I agree that this is a fundamental flaw. Whats kinda funny though is that its not really IPS's fault, nor is it Zone's fault... just an unusual intersection of two assumptions. The only solution currently is a local IPS mirror, but thats not feasible on a small scale.
Of course, lets not forget that Zone's already has a rocky relationship with IPS given the non-sparse issue.... but this may push up the time table. Any guidance as to what the Zones team is doing to resolve the non-sparse IPS problem? benr.
