The script works fine when Sanesecurity's site/mirror returns a 403 html 
  error message.  This was recently, some time ago I saw a download 
problem message, and the script had no problem with it, I'm not sure if 
the older problem was also a html message instead of the signatures file.

Somebody on this thread mentioned that the problem was the way curl was 
used, and that using wget was his solution... perhaps he can expand on 
what is the exact problem with curl, what version of curl, etc.
