On win32 it appears that wxDownload either bypasses the normal file write buffering mechanism, or continuously forces real writes to disk.
There should be a way of configuring this IMO - it is not appropriate for every set up (and in normal circumstances not even preferable for a desktop setup).
Fixed this by changing the read buffer size.
