And my response was that despite what is supposed to happen,
by pressing keys rather than talking out of my own ass, this
is what I found really happens. Claiming that it should be
rsCancelled detracts from, rather than contributes to, an
understanding of Ryan's problem. I had hoped that I'd made
that clear.

Um, What? I wasn't giving a 'how to' example, I was pointing
out what actually happens when I experimented with reproducing
the event in Ryan's log. I've said that I expected that this
should have resulted in rsCancelled but that's not what happens
and it would explain what happened on his system. There shouldn't
be an rsAborted without a partial file yet it happens as a result
of this erroneous state. What ought to have happened doesn't
change his log excerpt.

Your habit of disputing the general topics that you glean from
skimming my messages has become tiresome. You should first read
what you are replying to or is understanding an issue in direct
conflict with your being "adamant" about your preconceptions?
