But that should be fine, right?  I don't mind whether there's a
super-short suspend during the download of my file, as long as we
resume straight away and continue the download.  I got the impression
from Martin's mail that he's dropping into suspend and then staying
there, so his download doesn't progress.  (Maybe that's not what he
was trying to say, though.)

Yeah, we should get that fixed too.
