FTP Transfer is in progress, most probably in passive mode. DSL 
connection on the other side of the firewall does not drop down. File 
transfer stops due to the FTP server socket/connection close and KGet 
does not resume the file transfer. Resuming by hand immediately resumes 
the file transfer while KGet seems to never ever try to automatically 
resume it.

Any idea ?
