(Sheeeeesh, what am I doing? I have it right here in front of me... Must be
falling into release delerium or something...) So it just scrolls a message
saying that it can't pull any data down, which seems graceful enough to me.
(By graceful I mean "doesn't crash, destroy hardware or throw emotionally
scarring insults at the user").

I would be okay with it going out like this, with a mention in the "known
issues" section of our release notes, with a fix for 2.4.1 (probably earlier
in "tarball available" terms).

Release dudes?
