When I'm downloading two or more files one of the downloads was ending, that download stay with the messege "Few Seconds", and don't end the download.
I use Windows Vista Bussines too, but on Windows, that problem don't happen.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a download approximately 30Mb and continue navegation on the internet.
2. Start new download parallel before the first end.
3. Whait until the download was finishing, and it will apear the messege "Few Seconds"

Expected Results:  
The download don't finish, stay with the messege always.

Same problem here, but on Linux. Happens mostly when also using internet connection for other services, eg bittorrent or video streaming. files are ~100m in my case.

I suppose it has to do with losing packets of overfilled lines, especially when losing the FIN packet.

When looging into the part file only some few bytes are missing. Maybe its a good idea to flush the buffer when received bytes == sized communicated by the server

Screenshot of the download window

Appended a screenshot of the situation. Line 2 shows the download which never came to the end. Line 1 is a new download of the same file that i started when i've seen that the other will not complete.

The size of the part file of the incomplete download is 104840864 bytes, the full size is 104857600, so i miss only 16736 bytes..
