Hi,

I made a script with 5 lines, each a wget statement:



wget -c http://...
wget -c http://...
wget -c http://...
wget -c http://...
wget -c http://...


And ran it. I've done this same thing on 11.10 before with no unexpected results.

I was expecting each download to complete then move onto the next, but the progress bar is flashing between two different files, which at first looked like a glitch with screen. But I looked in the download directory, and sure enough, there are two files being downloaded at once.

This is actually really cool. I just wish I knew how this can be configured to work when I want it to.
