redownloading already downloaded podcasts?

is there a reason that running an "update" causes winamp to download previously downloaded "episodes"?

it shouldn't be happening and the only way i've ever seen that happen is if something happened to the files which are used to store the prior state not having been updated e.g. if Winamp crashed instead of being shutdown correctly.

interesting. I didn't even shut down winamp, I just right-clicked and selected "update all" and noticed some of the ones it was downloading were episodes I'd listened to yesterday from the downloaded copy.

So I went to the directory where winamp is saving them and noticed it zero out the size of the existing file just as it began downloading it again.

i really don't know then, clearly something is making the plug-in responsible think its not downloaded them or something is blocking it from updating it's saved states. but i really do not know what / why (and as things are i don't have the time to look into it).
