Details

I noticed a thread in japanese which i couldn't understand too well, but there seems to be a problem where the download.dat and backup will zero after a period of time. I think it could be when downloading a file from a user and they terminate their instance uncleanly, ie computer shutting down and killing processes. I may be completely wrong there but it was just how I saw it. It first appears as the display of speed of the downloads freezes, at this time things still seem to be downloading and search results still return. Then download speed starts to slow until its stopped. The downloads.dat file then zeros itself. Sometimes if I'm quick enough to spot it, I can shut the program down and restart and things are intact, sometimes the downloads.dat file has zeroed and the bak hasn't so I can copy it as .dat and run and it will work. Sometimes this will not work, I expect the bak is updated on program close and it zeroes too. This means that i have to make copies of the download.dat file regularly if i want to keep my queue.
