Weirdo problem grabbing Gif87a from web sites

Noticed this only with MC 2.4.3. I have a script that grabs images at an
interval from a website that creates images on the fly in gif87a format.
In the past this stack worked beautifully and I had not used it in some
Dusting it off today I noticed that it worked perfectly except for
displaying the picture. It appeared totally corrupted. This happened
whether I was importing the image or using the URL as a file path for
the image in question.
I manually downloaded the image to see what might be wrong. Other than
it being Gif87a I could not find anything amiss when I opened it in
other packages. So I manually converted it to png. Bing, it shows up
fine in the stack. Going back to the original image I save (gif) and
setting the file path to the local gif file also showed it as corrupted.
And to make doubly sure I just switched to the mac and did the same
routine. Same issue there.
Anyone have any idea why this is happening?
