On Downloads page "23.4 of 42.7 MB downloaded" when interrupted simply becomes "23.4 MB - 3:17 AM" a partial file with no indication of failure.

TBB knows both the total target file size and the current size. IF A!=B display "Incomplete" and the "Retry" icon. (Same as "Canceled") This way you know it will queue or can act.
