I *still* can't get this to work. When I tried qstat, it shows me that set
sv_dlURL is set to just "http://" and nothing follows. It just ignore my
http addess I have in there.I can even only get that far if I set sets
sv_dlURL in my server launch script. If I try putting it in *any* config
files, it totally doesn't see it.
