ok, I finally rubbed two brain cells together and realized/remembered UT also 
"logs" quite a bit of stuff.  So now I check the logs after this partial 
message and see:

Log: Browse:
Log: Resolving uz2.gameservers.net...
Log: Resolved uz2.gameservers.net (
ScriptLog: PlayerController.ProgressCommand Cmd 
'menu:GUI2K4.UT2K4DisconnectOptionPage'  Msg1 'Connection failed'   Msg2

send 'ONS-Severance[ECE]'
NetComeGo: Close TcpipConnection Tue Sep 28 22:28:02 2004
Exit: Socket shut down

aha! so now I see the message is "refused to send", but that seems to be 
baloney because the download progress counter just reached 100%

... UNLESS...

in an attempt to make people think their connection is awesome, the "percent 
downloaded" is totally bogus and is updated via a simple timer and bears no 
relation to any bytes downloaded -- nahhh -- nobody would do THAT, now would 
they? ;)

So the question remains, "what's the deal?"  what should I look for, what 
should I log, etc., to help resolve this?  [heck, I'll even run an ethereal 
trace if that's what it will take!]
