Well, that's quite a philosophic question here, chances are the user gave
up because of the speed of the tranfer and will try again later. If I
look at my logs I can see a number of scenarios like that, so with
quick_abort disabled the object in question will be in the cache next time,
of course only provided that it's smaller than maximum_object_size.
If it's larger then you should revise this parameter or your users. ;-) ^_-
