konqueror: download does not resume

Thanks for your answer, James.

The 'download manager' that showed up yesterday isn't kget actually. It looks 
like it, in essence, but it has no menu, and its title just says Progress 
Dialog. Thanks in any case to point me to kget. I've been playing with it and 
it looks usefull.

Either kget or konqueror are still overwriting .part files. Though, I guess, 
this might have to do with the SSH protocol, eg fish.

Using ftp connections both work as you indicate, automatically resuming the 
download. I still think, however, that having a choice about resuming or 
overwriting is usefull (eg, files with equal names on different directories 
-versions- etc).

Thanks again,
