Hi, I've got an app which downloads files using
idHTTP.get(filename,filestream);

It also updates it status using the workevents.

I also have a timer which once a second updates status and gives the
average time of the download over the last 10 seconds.

My problem is that when the download gets interrupted the timer event
doesn't fire anymore.

This is rather important to me because other things need to happen if
the average time goes down below a certain point.

Does anyone know why the timer stops working when the idHTTP is interrupted?
I tried antifreeze but that didn't seem to make a difference.
