I think you are right. I did an experiment with Ivan's 10/17 dvd upload, and I ended up needing PARs and all but one of the PARs were "pending" and did not download until I checked the boxes for each one again. Also, only parts of most RAR files were downloaded first. So, while it would be time efficient to try to download files as they are being uploaded, it seems risky.
