I located one of the files under /tmp/webtorrents and the other was 0 length. I did see a window pop up just now that asked where I wanted to put the file that was currently downloading, with the default being the ~/Download directory. Accepting the default seemed to produce no effect. So I just created ~/wikileaks and moved the file, terminating the torrent tabs. The behavior here is still rather mysterious.
I downloaded a couple of Wikileaks torrents yesterday. The system is remote (accessed via TeamViewer). These downloads apparently completed. Before I could look at them, my remote connection went down. It came back up today. When I opened Brave, restoring the webtorrent tabs, it prompted me to download the torrents again. Curious, I clicked on them and webtorrent informed me it was downloading them from scratch.
Any idea where I could find them?
