I have my doubts that updating the integer value containing the number of bytes received (which is all the download thread does) would result in a CPU spike. The CLV is refreshed at one second intervals - there is no hyperactive updating or locking contention in issue here. I will look into the behavior that you describe, though, during the rewrite of the download code.

The two feature requests are good ones, and are already in the bug database and will be addressed as part of the download code rewrite.
