Hmm..  Maybe that's new..  or maybe it's different somehow there..  Here,
I've had it d/l only the first part, and then when I go back to process it
later expecting it all to be d/led, it has to go back out and get the
rest, which is a bother when it's a big item..  But I don't do it that
often, so..

Maybe it's the select method I use.. select-all, or first-shift-last, then
hist the d/l function.  If parts aren't expanded, it only selects the
first part (naturally, since the others are folded in and hidden) and only
d/ls the first part.  If they are, of course it selects them too as part
of the range, and d/ls them along with everything else.

Or maybe it's the d/l method I use.  I don't bother with the flagged, as
that would mean unflagging and reflagging the next set for multiple d/ls
so the second one didn't include the first one as well and cause multiple
connections to be opened trying to get the same part!  Thus, I just use
the d/l, not d/l flagged, and have assigned the d/l button a customized
hotkey for that purpose.  (F1, here, as ez to find by touch, and since PAN
doesn't have a useful help file to bring up with that key.)
