Strangely, however (this behavior 'started' today, without any upgrade, or 
conscious config change, etc), the usual download dialog changed. Instead of 
that 3-botton (open file, open location, cancel; + keep after download) it

The problem is that now I'm never asked for resuming a download. Instead, the 
partyally downloaded file is overwritten.

At least the resume option, thou also removing that sort of netscape 
'download manager' that's not practical for me (eg, no progress % seen if
