Does this instruction cause resume?

I tried ktorrent.  I downloaded the torrent, but it does not work like I 
am used to when using ktorrent.  It downloads to a folder, but does not 
appear on the Ktorrent program.  I click on what they send, but it does 
not transfer to the ktorrent program.

When I download a movie, for instance, I click on the download button, a 
window opens that incuded the choices for what to download, I uncheck 
the things I do not want, but when I click on OK, the box I checked the 
items disappears and the torrent program starts downloading what I checked.

With the Kubuntu downloads, it arrives differently.  When I click on 
what they sent, it does not appear in the download portion of Ktorrent, 
and I don't know what to do to make that happen.  I currently have 478 
of 596mb downloaded of the Jaunty package I am trying to receive and the 
download is stopped.  The most I have ever received before the download 
just started over at 0 again is about 535mb.  It is very frustrating 
when I get that close to completion.  Do you know if the torrent 
procedures have changed in Jaunty Alpha 6?
Thanks for the reply, Nils.  Is it warming in Germany with plants 
sprouting, like here?
