I thought so. However, there are two things:

(a) I was unsure whether, in a proxied environment, a
"ClientAbortException" means download canceled by the actual (external)
"client" or by the proxy server (which is directly accessing the
backend tomcat).

(b) In none of the cases I watched so far, some user consciously /
actively stopped a download in progress - all reported that either the
"download finished" but ended up with an empty / small / corrupted file
or an error message showed up - or nothing happened at all. :(

I am not really sure who's to blame for that... :/

Thanks for your help, nevertheless, and best regards,
