ark (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Occasionally Firefox will download part of a multipart rar archive but the download fails part way through for some reason without reporting that the download had an issue. This will leave me with an archive file with the correct name, but truncated, say 87MB instead of 100MB. Consistently when extracting multi-part rar archives with such a file using ark from dolphin ark reports finishing extracting but does not warn me that there was an issue. Then I tend to delete the old archive files but find I have a corrupted extracted file or folder. If I try to extract the same files with file-roller it pops up with a warning that extraction failed. I have noticed that if I use ark to try to extract a multi-part .rar file where one whole file is missing or mis-named it will pop up with a failure warning. This behavior should not be possible because ark should do some sort of CRC analysis, unless I am mistaken.
