Hi All,

i have the following (serious?) problem:

one of my users had surfed on the internet. On the page ""
he started to download 3 files: 1 .gz, 1 .tgz and 1 with .zip extension.
He see that these files are very large, so he cancelled two of them after a few
kilobytes. I looked at his harddisk, and he really has only the .zip. BUT I looked 
at delegate's log. As I saw, delegates continued downloading all the three files. 
There are lines in the log: "recipient seems to be dead", but delegate just continued....
And the files are stored in the cache!

My question is: have I forget to give a parameter to force delegate to abort 
when "recipient seems to be dead", or is it a bug? And how can I avoid it in the

Thanks in advance,
