Ok, as expected, the problem showed up this evening: one podcast had started downloading, but was stuck at 14%. I tried with wget in a terminal, and oh miracle, it worked. For sure it was slow, but it worked !
So RB definitely is not as "bullet proof" as wget !
UNFORTUNATELY..... even with the debug option, it printed nothing at all in the terminal while sitting at 14%. So I think RB just finds it "normal" to act this way, and doesn't feel the need to comment about it ! ;-/
I guess we don't realy need information do we ? Can't we "just" ;-) look at the source code of wget and compare it with RB, to enhance the latter ?
I know I know, it's always easier said than done ;-)
