When commanding the "Text Files" option of "Save Page As", a correct text file is created, but the Downloads window shows the item as "Starting..." with no progress in the progress bar.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to
2. command File> Save Page As, select "Text Files" in the popup menu in the dialog, use the default file name.
3. in the Downloads window, observe that this item appears with status "Starting..." and never progresses (bad).
4. open the saved file in a text editor (for example TextEdit). You will see that it has a representation of the page as a text file, with no obvious missing data.

Actual Results:  
see above

Expected Results:  
see above

Not sure why this feature is called the plural "Text Files" - under what conditions would there be more than one file?

confirming :(

No download file appears to be downloading either...

Similar to what we needed to do for exthandler.. set the NETWORK bit. All places in webbrowserpersist that have a STATE_START or STATE_STOP are able to send STATE_IS_NETWORK bit if necessary with this patch.
