But i *wont* suggest that unless your running a lame warez server
I don't have AllowRetrieveRestart but I probably should. I'm a bit paranoid about security so I'm not about to give total permissions; in fact clients cannot even see a directory listing for "incoming" and that's the only place they can write...
The problem turned out to be trivial; I had created a test-case, and it did NOT have write permissions. Once I set it to have the same permissions as normal client-uploaded files, the restart worked as expected!
Thanks for the reminder that I need to be sure they can restart downloads if need be...
