Description of problem:
When I am downloading update files of any size Up2date will hang in the middle
with either a server reset or no message at all.  There was a similar bug
regarding the lack of a message but I need a solution for the server resets. 
When downloading the updates at work (not using up2date) the download will often
finish with an incomplete file.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run up2date
2.selecte a long file to download such as a kernel or kernel source.
3.wait for the modem lites to stop updating.

Actual Results:  The download stops.  There may be an error message with an OK
icon that will kill up2date or no message at all.  If up2date was run from a
command line there will be a message about a server reset.

Expected Results:  The server should not reset and the download should complete.

Additional info:

I am connecting through mindspring.com with a 56K modem.  My usual connect
speeds are 49333.

Haven't seen any reports of this behaviour in a while.
