Could TorButton check whether a download is in progress and, if so, give the user a choice whether to proceed?

It currently seems to be assumed that cancelling & clearing the download is acceptable. It doesn't provide any feedback to the user about this assumption either - their downloads just disappear.

As a simple fix, couldn't we just present a popup and clear this behavour with the user before creating the new identity?

"Choosing a new identity at this time will cancel your current downloads. Do you want to proceed?"
