Speaking of lunacy: Before I upgrade to 1.5, can someone tell me if the
'feature' of renaming downloaded files by incrementing version number has
been restored to a more sensible "Do you want to overwrite this file"

realising! It's particularly annoying when the file itself has a version
number, so I end up with:
