Thanks for the clarification.  I've also seen this behavior once or
twice... but have been running pacman 3 for a while now.

Anyway, guys - I pushed a new libdownload to testing (I guess it could

has fixes that *should* prevent the drop-to-prompt bug.  Please test
it out and let me know if this fixes the issue.
