The data is in cache on disk, but at least in Opera the format of that  
file is jumbled in order to store only the parts of the resource that have  
been downloaded. For this reason, I also believe we start a new download  
using "save as", as that's easier than writing the code to only download  
the missing parts and put it together. It could also be completely buggy,  
I haven't tested it :)
