Thank you for your answer-questions; here are my answers now.

Kept default

Same with this one.

13:38:13 : Job[1] : Attempt number 5

13:38:14 : Job[1] : Connected to host

Last message appears also as a pop-up-message

No reason here, really, is it ? And the message is not really from the 
server, I guess, it is from the KGet. KGet has also remembered the 
password, it has it also in the KWallet. But it never even tries to 
resume download and it allways asks me to type-in the password when I 
resume the operation manually.

any suggestions, please ?
