Service pack fails to download: sp_check.stat: "SP integrity suspiceous"

Service pack process encounters "integrity" problems....

The sp_extract.log file has:

tar: sp.bin.SunOS-new.tar: Wrote only 6656 of 10240 bytes
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

And the sp_check.stat:

Errors extracting binary SP files
SP integrity suspiceous

Note: there are messages indicating that some files were successfully downloaded but then, later, these errors.

In one case: "Problem appears to have been caused by a shortage of disk space caused by files which the operating system viewed as "open" but which were still counted among the free blocks."

In another case, running the Service Pack installation again -- without any change to the system -- was successful.

KB 16384-32354 might be relevant in some cases.
