Download Manager increments version numbers of already existing downloads
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050223 Firefox/1.0.1 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050223 Firefox/1.0.1 If I download any software with the format <appname>-<version#>.<ext> (i.e. putty-0.57-installer.exe), and I already have the same file in the download directory, the Download Manager makes it putty-1.57-installer.exe instead of putty-0.57-installer-1.exe, which is what I would expect. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Download any file with the above format 2. Re-download it without deleting the first copy 3. Actual Results: Download Manager increments the first number it encounters after the first dash Expected Results: append the dash to the end of the filename before the extension
