That would change quite often. Often a few things are added or
changed.  I downloaded all the images on the day it was decided the
final version and given to the CD duplicating agency.  But forgot to
grab the md5 checksums, which is really a mistake on my part.

The difference now you found was due to a small change in the cztex,
the czech version -- an ugly emabarrassing bug of line end character
troubles with Win32 batch files, which was fixed and a new image
uploaded to the TUG server although the duplication job has been
started already.

Since it hardly bothers our people, I didn't bother to download the
new image.

I will take care of this whenever I do next time. Please accept my
apologies for my shortcoming.
