Seems more like it should be in Website + Forum, but whatever.

To expand upon what Tree said, it shows this message both at the main Download page, and if you try to actually download it, whether through http or through torrent.

Fixed temporarily. The problem is the same one that often reset the download counter before. The code just doesn't work well when two people start a download simultaneously, because then two processes concurrently open the dlcount.txt file and try to modify it.

Edit: The counter should be fixed for good now, it uses the actual filename of the counter file to track the downloads now. The best solution would probably be a database but this works too, since renames are atomic operations.
