Hi Hollen,

It is a powered hub.

I've restarted my torrent twice, and seen two rather quick failures (twice 
in a day), so this is a repeatable problem.

I've now hooked the disk up on one of the root-ports and will be restarting 
the download against it.

Still - there /should/ not be a problem running over a hub, powered or 
otherwise. Right?
