Whenever a zb file contains a SFV fike, kwoty doesnt download this.
Instead it trys forever to downlaod this but never complete it, in fact of this teh entire queue will not be processed.

When the SFV file is removed the queue will be downloaded correctly.

    Hi,
    Thanks notifying me that problem ! :)
    As kwooty doesn't manage file types during download process, SFV files should be downloaded as any other files. Actually I think that SFV files you try to download are no more present on your usenet server.
    The server may then send an answer that is not handled by kwooty which then trys to download the SFV file again and again.

    If you compile kwooty from sources, you should have debug messages if you launch it from a terminal. Maybe you would encounter the following debug message when SFV file is being downloaded :
    "Answer from host : 423 not handled !"

    I attached two files that allow to handle answer 423 from server. Could you try to replace nntpclient.cpp and nntpclient.h from src folder (assuming you're using kwooty 0.3.0) by these ones, compile kwooty project again, then test ?

    I hope this will help but If it still doesn't work, could you please contact me at xavier.kwooty AT gmail.com as I will need additional info in order to solve this bug.

    Xavier
