I needed to download the Solaris install disk, software disk 1 and software 2
from Sun today (argh) in any case, all three compressed files are about 350 MB
or greater.  I used 'save link target' for each file and pointed each file to be
saved on a network file share.  Download manager reported that all three had
successfully downloaded in about 2 minutes which is impossible through our
network.  So, I actually had to use IE on the same machine to save them  to the
network file share successfully.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. find three large compressed files on a website.
2. using 'save link target as' each file one at a time to save to a network file
3. open and watch download manager.
4. compare bytes to what really exists on the network file share.

Actual Results:  
download manager reports all bytes for all three files are there when in reality
approximately 1% of each file was saved.

Expected Results:  
all three files should have been saved with the correct byte count.
> 1. find three large compressed files on a website.

Any chance of a URL to files that failed for you?

I wonder if the "network device" was relevant to this bug at all, or if it's
just a dupe of bug 237623...
