- Socket timeouts are now used during file transfer so that connections lost
while connected to a repeater are detected

to keep the server or viewer from timing out during a read.
- The prompt for exit is now respects the m_fExitCheck setting if the 'x' in the
full screen titlebar is clicked
- Another big change to the file transfer module is that a temporary file is used
to hold the file being transferred. When it is successfully completes, it is
moved to the original file name -- resume still works too. This was because
when a file transfer is interrupted, a user (ie, service tech) can't tell
if the file is complete.

file transfers. You can't close the window with the 'x' during a transfer,
