Rather annoyingly, I cancelled a bittorrent download, and when I resumed it would not pick up on the previous download. It looked like I might be forced to restart, losing 152MB of progress. Each time I tried to select the existing directory to attach to, the file browser would navigate *into* the directory, which is not what I wanted – the contents of the torrent *is* the directory.
Hooray for command line. I located the torrent file in my `/tmp` directory and used the following command to get back on track:
`gnome-btdownload –url /tmp/myfile.torrent –saveas ~/downloads/thedir/ &`
