I might be wrong but I think pacman is downloading the packages
directly to the cache directory. This might cause problem if the
download starts on one host and is started on another host before the
download is done. pacman will then report the package as corrupted but
doesn't try to redownload it automatically. It won't do any harm but
it can get anoying if you have a large number of systems.
