get_iplayer-3.18 (yes, i know it is not the latest) aperiodically
while downloading a media file will drop the connection, reconnect and
upon reconnecting starts re downloading from Zero bytes.
it just did it on a file that was 95% complete over 4GB all ready
downloaded upon reconnecting it began downloading all over again from
the beginning.

What causes this to happen?
I am not asking that it be "solved". I would just like to know why it happens.
