Issue #2785 has been updated by ftigeot.

Various people have reported similar issues on the IRC channel.

It is unclear when pkg(8) started to fail exactly since this problem does not occur systematically.

However, we can be sure pkg-1.3.x was safe.
According to the logs of my wolfpond.org mirror, pkg(8) was upgraded to version 1.4.0 on December 16, 2014.
