[Pine-info] message size changed, Pine won't save: solution?

This refers to Pine 4.64 on a Debian system. I use Pine as a sort of
pop/imap checker, reading messages that I simply leave on the mail server
for a time and deleting those I don't want. Periodically I download the
undiscarded messages en masse to my machine for longer-term storage. Pine
works for doing this, for the most part. But occasionally Pine tells me
message sizes have changed (shrank), and it thus will not save the
message: consequently the bulk save I'm trying to do fails. This is
annoying. I assume the message size change raises some security flag and
the program is trying to protect the host machine from a malicious e-mail?
Well, I'm sure the messages I'm trying to download in bulk now are not
malicious, and I'm not sure why the message size change occurs. That
doesn't even especially interest me, but I would like to be able to
download these messages to my computer from the server. Is there a way I
can force to program to ignore the message size difference and download
these messages anyway? I experimented with Mutt, btw, and it was able to
download those messages just fine, not giving any sort of error or failure
message related to the message size changing. Input will be appreciated.
