Err, it is long even after all pending downloads are 
finished? The engine should then scan all files quickly to 
reach the end (note:when no connection is alive anymore, 
you can disconnect, httrack won't do any network transfer

It should not have been so. httrack flushed the cache 
output after each file, so that it can be reused even after 
a "violent" crash. of course, files in memory and not 
flushed will be lost - but files confirmed and validated 
should be fine.

But this problem might be related to the weird "missing" 
files you reported before - it might be interesting if you 
could test the -TEST2 release.
