Needless to say, it's frustrating to see "Downloading 400 of 86209 headers" in the statis bar. Once it starts, stopping and trying Get Msgs again does not help, it will try again to download them all. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Usually happens with many programs running at once 2. " " after not checking the newsgroup for a while. Actual Results: Sometimes it goes for all of the headers, sometimes it doesn't. Expected Results: Just download new headers. This was in WinME, which wasn't an option on the OS dropdown box. I selected 98 because ME, to my knowledge, was based on that.
I should note that the box "Ask me before downloading more than  headers" was, indeed, checked.
