Strange url that led to non-stopping downloading

|When downloading the project (settings are given below), at the end of downloading when a the project is about to be finished, there would always be two links in the downloading list that POB is downloading all the time, something like:
I tried open it online, but it was a link that does not exist. I wonder why that happens.

|This goes from some script. The program finds anything that looks like a link and tries to get it. Please set a limited number of attempts in the Options dialog - like 10. After trying 10 times such links will be abandoned.

|But it seems that POB WAS actually downloading the link, just it's too large. (I mean the size of the files is increasing all the time when the last two links were being downloaded).|

|Yes, I see now. The page has script that refers to this spacer.gif image again and again and the URL length was increasing in every page it loads. I will think how to add a workaround for such cases.
