I had no such killswitch. For heavens sake, i made my own now, hacked into the network monitor, on-click executing a SUDO  command. But, (1) claws now hangs for a lomg time, until the edrror message occurs. This is not really handy. And (2) it kills the interface, but what if i was downloading something in parallel ? - And voila, a clwas switch would be more convenient.

But isn't this merely a fact with no inherent consequences. What i said was that a user should be able to decide to kill a transmission in the middle. If it is technically possible, and desired by users, then why not considering it ?
