Hello Oliver,

Thanks for that but I tried:

1. Start online update.
2. Drop dialup connection at 75% of an upload.
3. Click "Abort"
4. Re-connect dialup.
5. Click "Continue update".

YOU decided to abort that 75% upload! In fact it still does this even without
dropping the line.

Oh, well, perhaps I'd better drop SuSE a line, but I'm surprised that this
feature isn't incorporated yet. It is back to curl for me, but it is more

Thanks anyway.

SuSE 9.1
