I wasn't able to reproduce this manually when I tried, but based on the nature of the bug, it's probably reproducible by placing breakpoints in the code that handles the paused downloads.

While I don't have the time to look into this now, it seems to me we should never show the undetermined progress bar when a download is paused, in particular because it is animated.

Note that it may not be easy to show the same progress that we had before the download was restarted, because we lose the internal state for a moment. Even if we cannot do that, we can still show an empty progress bar though.
