While using gftp to transfer large files, it is supposed to restart where 
it left off after a time-out or disconnect.  Instead it enters a "ping 
pong" action, where it tries to reconnect, almost immediately disconnects, 
then reconnects, etc., until the max number of retries is reached.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start file download with gftp
2.Interrupt the file transfer
3.watch as it tries to restart

Actual Results:  it loops, (connects, disconnects, connects, disconnects, 
It's interesting that there still appears to be a data transfer in 

Expected Results:  Should have restarted the file transfer where it left 

I am on a slow 24k baud dial-up connection.
My ISP disconnects me after 1 hour.
Either a time-out, or an ISP disconnect, will cause me to lose the last 
hour of downloaded data when transferring a large file, unless gftp can 
restart the download.

This should be fixed in latest gftp, reopen if not.
